Milton hires Alan Hulick as city administrator
MILTON—The Milton City Council on Tuesday voted 4-2 to approve the hiring and contract of Alan Hulick as the new city administrator.
The contract was approved as presented by Mayor Brett Frazier after negotiations with Hulick.
Hulick will start with a yearly salary of $80,000 plus benefits, Frazier said. The position was advertised with a pay range between $80,000 to $90,000.
Hulick's start date most likely will be two weeks from now, Frazier said.
“I know he's eager to start working for the city of Milton,” Frazier added.
Council members Dave Adams and Nancy Lader opposed the hiring. Council member Don Vruwink said some council members were worried about Hulick's inexperience working with department heads and creating a budget.
“I worried about that, too, but I think he has the personal skills to relate well to many people in the city,” Vruwink said.
The fact that Hulick lives in Milton also helps, Vruwink said.
Hulick has the right education and his supervisors in Janesville had excellent things to say about him, Frazier said.
“Now it's just a question of him coming in … and really making sure his nose is to the grind stone,” Frazier said. “We expect a lot out of our staff. He'll have to fit that mold.”
Hulick replaces former City Administrator Jerry Schuetz, who resigned in July to take a position with the Milton School District.
