The St. Paul Park City Council approved the interim agreement last week and City Administrator Kevin Walsh said first-round interviews begin this week.

“We hope to get someone in front of the council as early as Oct. 21, depending on if second interviews are needed,” he said.

Flandrich has been the head of the city’s public works department for 18 years and previously worked in the same position in Newport.
