York Mayor Kim Bracey said after a City Council meeting Wednesday night that she expects the search for a new business administrator to take up to half a year.
Michael O’Rourke, who held the position for about a decade and a half, resigned abruptly last week.
Based on her experience in searching for an economic development director, she said she expects that the search for a new business administrator will take a significant amount of time.
“It won’t sit vacant but it will take … the right time,” she said.
She said she plans to form a committee to perform interviews and added that she doesn’t know what the candidate pool is like for that position.
She has yet to name an interim business administrator.
