Lowell Crow To Be Appointed As Freeport’s First City Manager

Freeport, Illinois —  The City of Freeport Managerial Form of Government Transition Committee is pleased to recommend the appointment of Lowell Crow as Freeport’s first City Manager. Mr. Crow is a decorated Navy Captain and currently leads the day-to-day operations for the City of Monmouth, IL as its City Administrator.

The process that lead up to this decision has been open, transparent and thorough. With the assistance of our recruiting firm GOVHR and the public members of this Committee, we feel unequivocally that Mr. Crow is the person most suitable to lead our great City through this transition and beyond.

On Monday, April 17th, during our regularly scheduled City Council meeting, members of the City Council and Mayor Jim Gitz will formally discuss the appointment of Lowell Crow. Given the strong and encouraging feedback that we have received from our constituents, it is our plan to approve a resolution that secures his employment with a starting date of May 22nd, 2017. As anticipated, Police Chief Todd Barkalow will assume the position of interim City Manager for a brief period as Mr. Crow concludes his relationship with the City of Monmouth. It is important to the City Council that Mayor Gitz is recognized for this seamless transition and for his willingness to offer whatever assistance the committee requested throughout this process.

If you would like to meet Mr. Crow, we aired a segment with the 5 finalists vying for the city manager position, which can be found below.

CITY MANAGER: Roughly 100 people gathered at Freeport’s City Hall for a chance to meet the person who will manage Freeport. Of these 5 you’re about to meet, the transition committee has already narrowed the results down to 3. Meet them here.

    Just a thought while glancing through your site…your top banner photo, can’t we do better than that? Something that represents the community better. It is a very dark photo only showing a small part of FHS and a dominant tree in the middle. The rest is pretty much nothing. There are some many cool places around town that would provide a much nicer photo don’t you think?
