The Minot City Council officially hired Harold Stewart II as the next City Manager after approving a contract during a special meeting on Friday.
Stewart comes to Minot from Warrensburg, Mo., where he has been the city manager. He was chosen from an original pool of 50 applicants, which was narrowed to three finalists. The finalists were interviewed by the City Council and a separate panel of department heads and community stakeholders.
“My family and I are very excited to become part of the Minot community. I strongly believe Minot has all the necessary components in place to forge a sustainable future,” Stewart said. “I look forward to working together with the Mayor, Council, City staff, community leadership, businesses, and citizens. I recognize it will take all of us to make Minot what we dream it could be.”
Stewart is scheduled to begin working in Minot on Dec. 28. He’s familiar with Minot, having been a finalist for the Minot City Manager job in 2014.
“We’re pleased to have Harold join us as our community continues to move forward,” Minot Mayor Shaun Sipma said. “The next few years are critical to Minot’s success, and the City Manager will play a key role in our development. We look forward to Harold joining our team.”
