Centerville hires interim city administrator

CENTERVILLE — The Centerville City Council Monday night voted 5-0 to offer Corey Goodenow, Chariton's city manager, the temporary city administrator job.

Centerville Mayor Jim Senior said Goodenow would put in 40 hours per week by working nights and weekends, which would require Joyce Davis, temporary city clerk, to put in overtime.

Councilman Edwin Brand questioned the wisdom of adding more overtime for Davis who already has accumulated a lot.

A second individual who applied, Dick Schrad, with Schrad Solutions, LLC in Knoxville and the City Council favorite going into Monday's meeting, took himself out of the running after seeing the city's software and deciding he would not be able to get the fiscal year 2014 budget done in time.

Davis said the city's proposed fiscal year 2014 budget, which starts July 1, 2013 and runs until June 30, 2014, has to be submitted to the state auditor by March 15.

Davis said she was confident if Goodenow was hired, the city would be able to get its budget submitted on time.
