Port Richey narrows city manager field to two

PORT RICHEY — The City Council has arrived at two finalists for city manager: former New Port Richey City Manager Tom O'Neill and James F. Coleman, who served as Williston city manager from 2004 to 2008 and Lady Lake town manager from 1999 to 2003.

Port Richey council members named the finalists Wednesday evening and plan to interview both men Nov. 21 at City Hall. The position offers a salary between $82,000 and $85,000 and three weeks' vacation. The vacancy was created in February when the council fired Ellen Posivach after determining she had made costly equipment purchases without seeking council approval.

Officials had considered hiring O'Neill on an interim basis earlier this year, but the council eventually decided to move forward with filling the spot permanently. Port Richey police Chief Dave Brown has been serving as interim city manager.
