City Engineer Louis Najar has been named interim city manager effective Feb. 15. Mayor Dennis Kintigh made the appointment following the earlier-than-expected departure of Interim City Manager Paula Hertwig-Hopkins, who had planned to work in Roswell until April or May, but had to leave the position for personal reasons that arose unexpectedly. Her last day was also moved forward to today from her originally scheduled departure Feb. 24.
Najar’s appointment will be considered for approval by the City Council at its next regular meeting March 9. If approved, Najar will serve until a permanent city manager is named. He will be paid at a rate equivalent to an annual salary of $145,000 while serving as interim city manager and also maintaining his duties as city engineer.
