Jefferson City's newly appointed Director of Finance withdraws

Jefferson City’s newly appointed Director of Finance has withdrawn from the position. After several months of searching, the Jefferson City Council hired Robin Milne as the new Director of Finance last week. Milne was scheduled to start as Director on October 1, 2012.

Jefferson City Communications Manager Michelle Gleba says that the City Council will begin to interview replacement candidates in the coming months.

“The current Finance Director is still Steve Schlueter," Gleba says. "He is planning to retire. His last day will be September twenty-eighth. It appears that we won’t have someone to fill that position after that date, so the Finance Department will just continue to run as is.”

The City Council unanimously approved Milne in a private session last week.  Milne stepped down from the position yesterday due to personal reasons.
