SULTAN -- Mayor Carolyn Eslick appointed Steve Worthington, most recently city manager of Fife, to be Sultan's interim city administrator.
Worthington will replace city administrator Deborah Knight, who is leaving Sultan on June 1 to serve as Stanwood's administrator.
The City Council hired the Prothman Co. to provide an interim city administrator and search for Knight's permanent replacement. Eslick hoped that the permanent city administrator will start in September or October. However, the starting date might be pushed further because the winning candidate may not be able to start that soon.
Worthington, who worked at Fife for six years, was one of three candidates interviewed for the interim position.
His experiences with utility budgets and enterprise funds made him the mayor's top choice for the interim position. His previous experiences as community development director for Fife and Cheney will also be a good addition for city works at Snohomish County.
In order to limit expenses, Worthington, who lives in University Place in Pierce County, will work in Sultan three days a week and will focus on helping Eslick and city staff prepare the 2013 recommended budget.
