Manager list now totals 2

With Chris Johnson of Anacortes, Wash., withdrawing from the pool of applicants for Homer city manager, the list has been narrowed to Carey Meyer, Homer public works director, and Jeffrey Trinker, executive director of support services, city of Rosenberg, Texas, the city announced in a press release Monday.

Trinker visits Homer on March 2, and he and Meyer meet in personal interviews in a special meeting of the Homer City Council at 4 p.m. March 3. 

Trinker interviews at 4 p.m. and Meyer at 6 p.m. Both interviews will be open, and the public is invited to attend and comment. 

Written comments on the record about the applicants also can be sent to the city council through the City Clerk’s office, said City Clerk Jo Johnson. She did not know if the council would select a new city manager on March 3.

The former deputy executive director of the Port of Anacortes, Wash., Johnson withdrew his application because he got an offer and accepted another job, said Jo Johnson.

During Trinker’s visit on March 2, council members Bryan Zak and Gus VanDyke will take him on a tour of the city, including visits of city facilities and meetings with department heads. Meyer also will be given time to meet with two council members.

Resumes for Meyer and Trinker are available at the city’s website at
