Recruitment for a new Lincoln City Manager is being handled by Bob Murray and Associates of Roseville and the deadline to apply for the job is Sept. 14.

The recruitment process could take four to six months, according to the city of Lincoln website.

Lincoln Mayor Stan Nader said he has not heard from the recruiter, Gary Phillips, since he and the rest of the City Council were interviewed weeks ago. Phillips owns the recruitment firm.

“Gary interviewed all of the City Councilmen individually to put together a brochure detailing what we are looking for,” Nader said. “Trust is high on my list. I also want someone who is action-oriented, is good with people and can interact with staff without using fear and retribution.”

An application for the city manager position can be found at the firm’s website,, or email resumes to
