NEVADA – The Sparks City Council is set to deliberate the potential appointment of Police Chief Chris Crawforth as the acting city manager. This consideration will be on the agenda during the council’s meeting scheduled for September 11.
This announcement follows closely on the heels of a crucial decision made by the City Council just a day prior. In that session, the council voted to terminate the employment contract of the now-former City Manager, Neil Krutz.
If approved, the amendment to Crawforth’s employment agreement would see him take on the role of acting city manager until March 31, 2024. In addition to this added responsibility, he would be compensated accordingly for the extra duties he would undertake.
Mayor Ed Lawson expressed his rationale for the move, stating, “I’d like to do a national search for a new City Manager, and that takes time. I have full faith in Chief Crawforth’s ability to lead the City forward while we do the work of finding our next City Manager.”
As the City Council convenes on September 11, all eyes will be on their deliberations and the potential course they chart for the city’s future leadership.
