Manitou Springs city government is continuing its ill-fated quest to hire a city administrator, which began in January 2018. Multiple candidates have refused the job and the search has been plagued with infighting among councilors and Mayor Ken Jaray.

Now Council has narrowed its search to three candidates, the Pikes Peak Bulletin reports. They are: Denise Howell, a customer service manager/consultant with the utilities department in Fountain; Kathleen “Katie” Ann Sickles, the former city administrator of Ouray; and Roy Chaney, longtime city pool director and now acting city administrator. A final decision is expected soon.

Meanwhile, since Jaray’s announcement that he would not run for a second term as mayor, longtime Manitoid Alan Delwiche has announced he’s running for the job. Delwiche has served on the city’s Planning Commission for nearly 25 years, and as chair for 12 years. He has also served on several other city boards. A new mayor and three councilors will be elected in November.
