Spearfish-City Administrator

Spearfish-City Administrator
New administrator in Spearfish focuses on the city's growth
The Associated Press - November 6, 2017

SPEARFISH, S.D. — The new city administrator in Spearfish says the biggest surprise since taking office in September has been dealing with the explosive growth in the community.

Michael Harmon is charged with overseeing 105 full-time employees and a $25 million annual budget. The 35-year-old said he recognizes that the city is in a transition.

The city has assumed control of the Black Hills Airport/Clyde Ice Field and transformed its volunteer fire department into a city department with paid leadership. But he says other hurdles are awaiting city leaders, including providing and maintaining infrastructure such as water and sewer.

Harmon, who has a salary of $117,000, previously served as city administrator in Fairfield, Iowa, a town of 10,000 in the southeast corner of the state.
