The Lady Lake Commission will spend $26,500 on a firm to lead the search for a new town manager.
The commission has agreed to enter into a contract with Colin Baenziger and Associates, a Daytona Beach Shores firm that specializes in municipal executive searches. The firm was chosen after a selection committee reviewed the proposals that had been submitted.
The process was launched when Town Manager Kris Kollgaard, who led the town for more than a decade, announced that she would be stepping down. She found herself under intense scrutiny after demanding the resignation of popular Police Chief Chris McKinstry. He had filed an age discrimination lawsuit against the town.
