The City of Eldon is on the looking for a new city administrator.

Mayor Trevor Vernon says the city is now taking applications for the position.

The city has been in turmoil with residents over the current financial state following major cuts to several departments back in December.

Vernon says the new candidate will need excellent problem-solving skills to help transition the city into the future.

Current City Administrator Debbie Guthrie plans to remain onboard to help with the transition once a candidate is selected.

Vernon hopes to have that done by August 1st.
