BGR wants delay in search for Sewerage and Water Board leader

The City of New Orleans thinks the Bureau of Governmental Research misses the mark with a recommendation to put off the search for a new leader of the Sewerage and Water Board.

The Sewerage and Water Board is set to meet August 21 to select a consultant to lead the search to replace executive director Marcia St. Martin.

BGR notes that a vote in October could shake up the way the board is put together. Therefore, it wants the selection process to be put on hold until after the vote.

“This board is fully capable of initiating a search process to find the best candidate in the country to fill the executive director position,” said Tyler A. Gamble, Mayor Landrieu’s press secretary. “The Mayor would like the Board to continue the open and transparent process currently underway. To date, the Board has worked to publicly and competitively seek a professional search firm,” he said.

Marcia St. Martin’s retirement takes effect on December 31.
