SEQUIM: Elliott says he has already signed and returned the contract for the city manager job


SEQUIM — Bill Elliott expressed an interest in becoming Sequim’s city manager six years ago, but he missed the application deadline.

“I was too late getting my application in,” he said Tuesday morning from his home in Milton-Freewater, Ore. “When this opportunity came up, I tried again.”

This time Elliott, 59, met all the required deadlines and impressed the City Council with his enthusiasm, apparent leadership qualities and experience.

“The contract is in the mail,” he said. “I signed it this morning.”

The City Council is expected to vote early today to hire Elliott and approve his contract, which calls for an annual gross salary of $71,000 plus benefits.

The council will meet in a study session and special meeting at 9 a.m. in the Sequim Community Center, 190 W. Cedar St.
