Council Names Interim City Manager: Steve Lancaster

Interim City Manager Steve Lancaster
Jan 6, 2016 - At its regular meeting on Monday night, January 4, the Mercer Island City Council selected Steve Lancaster as interim City Manager.
Based on a unanimous 7-0 Council vote, Lancaster will temporarily replace outgoing City Manager Noel Treat who resigned in December 2015 to take a position with the Seattle School District.
Prior to retiring as Tukwila’s City Administrator in 2011, Lancaster spent 12 years as that city’s Community Development Director, and two and a half years (2007-2009) as the Development Services Director for the City of Mercer Island. Earlier in his public service career, he also worked for the cities of Auburn and Puyallup.
“While we were disappointed to have to refill this position, we were thrilled with the quality of applicants, and are very pleased to welcome Steve back to Mercer Island,” said Mayor Bruce Bassett.
In the coming months, the City will select a recruitment agency that will help locate candidates to permanently fill the City Manager position - the process is expected to conclude by June 2016.
