RHINELANDER - On Monday night, a special Rhinelander city council meeting took place, in part, to discuss the city administrator position.
Back in February, Keith Kost started working as a part-time City Administrator. Kost's contract was set to end in December.
The special council approved a motion Monday night to extend Kost's contract through the end of June 2018, giving the city more time to find a replacement.
The council also discussed if the city should stick with a part-time administrator, or switch back to a full-time administrator.
A community member at the meeting also brought up the idea of creating city planner positions, instead of having a city administrator.
"I think we just need to have a direction," said Alderperson Mark Pelletier. "Do we want to re-sign one exactly the same, or do we want to see what our options are out there?"
No date was set on when the special council would meet again to discuss the city administrator position further.
The council also passed a motion to define the Rhinelander Mayor's position by statute and city code before Dec. 1 of this year.
