The City of Evanston announced this afternoon that Carol Mitten won’t be Evanston’s next city manager.
The announcement says that, “After continued conversations, the Evanston City Council and Urbana City Administrator Carol Mitten have decided that Ms. Mitten is not the right fit for the Evanston City Manager position and will not be moving forward as a candidate.”
The city now has gone through three rounds of trying to find a new manager without any success. Mitten was the only finalist identified in the third round.
The city’s announcement says the council “is currently in discussions with Interim City Manager Luke Stowe to determine next steps for the City.”
Last Thursday, shortly before a town hall forum for Mitten at the Civic Center, Ald. Devon Reid (8th) said he was not happy with having only one finalist, and would like Stowe to at least be considered as well.
