The city of Eldon is continuing it search for a new City Administrator, but in the meantime they’ve hired new Interim Administrator David Mitchem who will be filling in for the next six months. According to Mitchem, it doesn’t matter that he’s only there for a short time, he plans to get as much done as he can. Mitchem wants to work on budget issues, fix infrastructure that needs repairs and help the staff. Mitchem comes from the town of Pagosa Springs, Colorado where he was the town manager for six year. He hopes to get things done and possibly become part of Permanent crew. Mitchem replaces former administrator Debbie Guthrie who retired back in March.
