On Tuesday, April 25, Mayor Will Joyce and the Stillwater City Council met to discuss hiring Brady Moore as a temporary replacement for former City Manager Norman McNickle after he retires on May 15.
“We appreciate Brady serving in this crucial position – continuing efforts to increase and secure economic development, enhance the quality of life, and ensure those living in or visiting our community are safe,” Mayor Joyce said on Tuesday night.
After serving Stillwater for 45 years, Norman McNickle is stepping down and retiring. He started out in 1976 as a Stillwater Police Department officer and has since climbed the ranks and worked his way up to City Manager over the years.
Some of the other positions McNickle earned across his years of experience include Patrol Officer, Investigator, Corporal, Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain and Chief of Police in 1987, Public Safety Director, interim City Manager and City Manager in 2016 where he has served for seven years.
“While I am not applying for City Manager, I am honored to fill the interim position to ensure current projects remain on track,” said Assistant City Manager Brady Moore. “We have much work to do and we want to make sure the transition of leadership is as seamless as possible.”
Mayor Will Joyce encourages potential candidates to apply as they search nationwide for someone to fill in the position.
