City staff says there are three firms who have express interest in this process. All three firms will present their proposals to the city council at a work session prior to the meeting.

If hired, the search firm would be responsible for bringing in candidates and arranging interviews. The Civil Service Board would then interview all potential candidates and provide their recommendation to the city council.

Back in September, Waite Park Police Chief Dave Bentrud announced he would be retiring in May. He's been serving as police chief since 2008.
