Menahga hires new city administrator

The Menahga City Council is offering the city clerk/treasurer/administrator position to Walter Salo, of Chisholm.

The council voted to offer the position to Salo after two rounds of interviews. The starting salary is $55,000. Mayor Tom Larson has tried to contact Salo but he is camping, said interim clerk/treasurer Susie Larson. The city is waiting for a response from Salo.

Salo has experience in city government. He was the city administrator in Cook for four years. He has also worked as executive director for Bois Forte Tribal Council in Nett Lake and as executive director for Range Transitional Housing Agency in Virginia.

The council had two rounds of interviews for the position, which has been vacant since April when Teri Osterman announced her resignation. She had worked for the city for eight years.
