The City of Lewiston has begun a search for an interim city administrator following the resignation of current city administrator Travis Brierley.
Brierley stepped down to accept the assistant city administrator position with the city of Newport, Minnesota.
The Lewiston Journal reports that before the City Council decided to search for a temporary interim administrator, discussions were held on whether a city clerk should be hired instead.
Once an interim administrator is on board a search for a permanent administrator will be undertaken. In the meantime, Deputy City Clerk Cheryl Knight will be in charge of city business.
