Interviews are scheduled for later this week with four applicants for City Planning Director, according to the Mayor.

Mayor Dean Maxwell told Anacortes Now that the city had 18 applicants for the Planning Director’s job vacated just last week by Ian Munce. Munce took a planning job with the city of Tacoma.

Maxwell said all four are “seem to meet our needs” and are scheduled for interviews on Thursday. He said it’s possible that the city will make an offer as early as this week. He said a start date would depend on the individual and their current employment.

He added that none of them is from Skagit County. The starting salary for Planning Director is $82,800 to $103,000, depending on experience.
