CROCKETT, TX (KTRE) - Crocket's city council voted unanimously to hire a new city manager at its regular meeting Wednesday night.
Mitzi Thompson, Crocket's city administrator, said the council voted to name Sean Hutchison as the new city manager by a margin of 5 to 0. Thompson said after the council narrowed the field of candidates down to one in executive session, they returned to open session and offered the job to Hutchison.
Hutchison is currently working as the village administrator and director of public works for Combined Locks, Wisconsin. He has been working in that capacity for seven years.
Thompson said that Hutchison is required by law to give the city leadership in Combined Locks 30-days' notice of his resignation. The Crocket city administrator said they are currently negotiating a contract for Hutchison's start date.
Hutchison is expected to start working for the City of Crocket by late December or early January.
