Public invited to meet city manager finalist candidates on Nov. 30

BEAUFORT, S.C. (Nov. 26, 2022) –  The public is invited to a meet-and-greet for the finalist candidates for Beaufort city manager on Wednesday, Nov. 30, from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Landing Pad, 500 Carteret St.

The search for a new city manager began immediately after Bill Prokop, the current city manager, announced in late September that he would retire from his position in January 2023. The position was advertised nationally, and the application period went from Sept. 28 through Oct. 21, 2022. The Municipal Association of South Carolina helped in the screening of candidates. The process has included a teamwork/leadership assessment, and initial interviews of the top candidates.

The City had 23 applicants from 12 states. 

On Nov. 30, City Council members will conduct final interviews with the candidates. That will be followed by the open house for the public to meet the finalists.

City Council is expected to make its decision by the middle of December.
