When top-level staff positions are vacant, City Hall Essentials strives to fill those voids with educated, experienced temporary executives. We have a network of qualified, upper-level municipal professionals to serve as Interim (or "Acting") department heads on a short-term basis.

Our professionals are capable of stepping in on short notice, serving as a stabilizing influence for a department in transition, providing routine services, and assessing the department's condition in order to provide guidance and suggestions to the city's leadership (and possibly those who will be filling the long-term positions). 

Generally, we seek to provide assistance with interim positions such as:

  • City Manager
  • City Secretary
  • Chief of Police
  • City Planner
  • Finance Director

City Hall Essentials is not an executive search firm. It is not our mission to place city officials in long-term positions.

It has long been the mantra of City Hall Essentials that education is crucial, "because informed city officials make better decisions."
Typically, only the largest municipalities have staff members who are educated, experienced, and credentialed City Planners.
