The search for a new finance director for the City of Napoleon seems to be over.
Council is set to meet in regular session Monday at 7 p.m. One of the items on the agenda is an ordinance to appoint a city finance director.
During committee meetings last week, staff noted a new finance director had been targeted, though officials would not release the name until after Monday’s meeting.
On Friday, Holgate Local Schools released a letter of resignation from Treasurer Kent Seemann, which is on the board of education’s agenda for Monday. In the letter, Seeman stated he was resigning “to pursue an opportunity with the City of Napoleon.”
Napoleon City Manager Joel Mazur said Friday the city did not have any comment on who has been hired for the finance director position, but did acknowledge Seeman was one of 12 applicants.
Seemann could not be reached Friday for comment.
In his letter to Holgate Local Schools, Seemann said his resignation would be effective April 22.
Former finance director Greg Heath retired in mid December.
An emergency clause is attached to the ordinance, but the agenda does not indicate that suspension of the rules requiring three readings is being requested.
