City Administrator / Finance Director
City of Hubbard, Oregon
Salary: Up to $115,000

Located in the lush Willamette River Valley in the northeastern corner of Marion County, Oregon, the City of Hubbard is a quaint, friendly bedroom community with a small-town atmosphere. Though comfortably surrounded by agricultural lands, Hubbard has convenient access to a variety of local and surrounding attractions, amenities, and year-round recreational opportunities. With the Cascade Mountain range to the east, ocean beaches to the west, the large metropolitan city of Portland to the north, and Salem, the state capital, about 20 miles to the south, visitors and residents have ample opportunities to explore the many treasures of the Pacific Northwest. As “the small town with a big heart,” Hubbard is home to just over 3,300 full time residents. While most of the current residents are retired or working in nearby Portland or Salem, the area is anticipating future growth in the next couple of years with the hopes of maintaining its small-town appeal and local interests.

The City of Hubbard operates under a mayor-council form of government. The Council is composed of a Mayor and four Council members elected from the city at large. The Mayor is elected for a term of two years, presides over deliberations of the Council and is a voting member. The four Council members are elected, each for a term of four years. The City of Hubbard operates on a 2021-22 budget of $10.1 million, with a beginning fund balance of $5.9 million, including a $1.4 million general fund. The City has 15 FTEs and one part-time staff member. The City’s three departments include Administration, Police, and Public Works. The Administration Department includes Municipal Court, Planning & Land Use, and Utility Billing. The Public Works Department includes parks, water, sewer, and streets.

Under the general direction of the Mayor and the City Council, the City Administrator is the administrative head of the City and is responsible for the overall management and administration of the City and city staff. This is a newly created position and, initially, the City Administrator will also serve as the City’s Finance Director. The City Administrator assists the council with the development of city policies and carries out policies established by ordinances, resolutions, and council directives. This position will exercise supervision over the City’s general affairs and all employees, contractors, and agents, except the city attorney and municipal judge. The City Administrator also plans, directs, and oversees the operations of the City’s finances, including financial reporting, billing systems, payroll, and budget development, with accountability for results in terms of costs, personnel, and financial best practices.

A bachelor’s degree in business administration, accounting, finance, public administration, public policy, or a closely related field, and at least 5 years of experience in public, finance, or municipal administration is required. A master’s degree in public or municipal administration is preferred. Candidates that possess any combination of education or experience that displays the relevant skills and training necessary to be successful will be considered.
