RHINELANDER — Former Weston Administrator Dan Guild has been offered a position as Rhinelander’s newest city leader, after a Monday night meeting.
Guild resigned in July, when Weston officials agreed to vacate his six-week suspension. Under the terms of Guild’s separation agreement, Weston paid Guild more than $93,000 upon his departure, which came five days after his return to office.
Six members of the Rhinelander City Council voted in favor of Guild Monday, according to a WJFW report. Two abstained, while Mayor Chris Frederickson cast the sole vote against Guild’s hire. Rhinelander has gone through a flurry of administrators in the past three years. The city’s last full-time hire, Kristina Aschenbrenner, was fired after one year.
Guild was one of three candidates for the job. If he signs his $95,000 annual contract, he will begin working next week.
