Forest Lake city administrator finalist withdraws; another added

posted in: Society | 0

One of the six finalists for the position of city administrator in Forest Lake has withdrawn her name from consideration and another finalist has been added in her place.

Renae Fry, former city administrator in North Branch and former administrative coordinator in Sauk County, Wis., last week was hired to be Steele County Administrator.

Fry’s withdrawal prompted the Forest Lake City Council to invite Tariq Al-Rifai, city administrator/economic development director for Paynesville, Minn., to a series of interviews on June 20, city officials said.

Al-Rifai previously served as executive director of Quorum Centre for Strategic Studies; head of research and investor relations with the Kuwait Finance House, and director of Index Investment Strategy with S&P Dow Jones Indices.

The five other finalists are: Joe Gaa, Thomas Hutka, Eric Johnson, Pat Oman and Devin Swanberg.

A total of 45 applicants applied for the job. The advertised salary range is $151,580 to $189,475.
