The Grand Island City Council appoints McAloon as interim city administrator
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (Nebraska) – The Grand Island City Council is fulfilling the mayor’s wish to appoint an interim city manager.
That person is current City Attorney Laura McAloon.
Mayor Roger Steele introduced a resolution Tuesday night to appoint McAloon to take over the role for six months because they work to fill the position permanently.
The spot opened in late 2022 with the retirement of City Administrator Jerry Janulewicz.
In early December, Mayor Steele said Laura McAloon was his choice to be city manager, but the council denied approval.
Following McAloon’s denial as city manager, the city council awarded a contract to Government Professional Solutions of Colorado to recruit candidates for both the city manager post and the public works/city engineer job.
“I know we are looking for a city manager, but that process may not be completed until mid-June, so this is another reason why I would like someone like my second to help me in case a decision needs to be made in my absence.” said Mayor Steele.
