Pendleton announces change at town manager

PENDLETON — Town officials announced that longtime Town Manager Doug McGee resigned on Saturday.

According to Town Council President Don Henderson, an executive session and public meeting were held Saturday morning to make the announcement. McGee, who has worked for the town for more than 27 years as a park board member, park manager and town manager, will resign to pursue another opportunity elsewhere.

In Pendleton, the town manager handles the day-to-day operations of town hall and heads up the water and electrical utility divisions.

"If you look at our finances for the town, with everything that's been going on since he's been here, he's done an excellent job," Henderson said.

Tim McClintick will replace McGee on an interim basis until Jan. 1, 2014. McClintick has been the assistant planning director for the town and according to Henderson, handles McGee's responsibilities from time to time.

Henderson is retiring from his position on Dec. 31, and said he wanted the incoming town council president to be able to pick his or her own new town manager. However, Henderson believes McClintick is capable and will have a chance to earn the job outright after the interim period.
