Frazee city administrator position still up in air

FRAZEE -- After interviews and a job offer, Frazee is still without a city administrator.

Last week, the Frazee City Council offered candidate Matthew Klemetson the position. Klemetson counter offered, which the city declined. The city council then went back and counter offered again, and Klemetson declined the position.

Klemetson, who lives in Ulen and serves on that city council, works for Harland Financial Solutions in Fargo.

Klemetson declined to comment on his reasons for not taking the position, but said, "in the end, I guess this is what I had to do."

Six finalists were chosen, and over a period of time, three of the finalists withdrew their applications, and Klemetson, Ken Bucholz and Stephanie Graham remained.

The position opened up when Kelcey Klemm left the administrator position to fill the Perham city administrator position when Bob Louiseau moved to the open Detroit Lakes city administrator position.

The Frazee council meets tomorrow (Thursday) at 6 p.m. in city hall to determine its next step.
