Former New Port Richey city manager a finalist in Colorado

NEW PORT RICHEY — Former city manager John Schneiger is a finalist for a similar post in Trinidad, Colo., a town of roughly 9,000 people a few miles north of the New Mexico border.

Schneiger, who turns 58 next month, stepped down as New Port Richey city manager in October, saying he believed he no longer had the support of a majority on the council. He received a $40,000 severance package that included unused vacation time.

Prior to coming to Florida, Schneiger served as city manager of two Colorado towns: Fruita and Montrose. He and Trinidad interim city manager Tom Acre are now the finalists for the post in that town. A Trinidad City Council majority known as the "gang of four" fired the previous city manager, Ed Gil de Rubio, last May amid allegations that he overstepped his bounds by committing city funds to projects without the council's blessing, according to the Trinidad Times.
