May 3, 2019

Paul Eckert, Roseburg’s final candidate for city manager, withdrew from the city’s hiring process Wednesday.

Eckert was selected by the City Council last Monday, and city staff began a reference check and background investigation shortly after.

The City Council will schedule an executive session before their regular meeting on May 13 to discuss the city’s next steps in the search for a new city manager, said Human Resources Director John VanWinkle in an email.
