Vruwink could become the next Rhinelander city administrator
By City Times staff
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Former Wisconsin Rapids Mayor Zach Vruwink could become the next full-time city administrator in Rhinelander.
After a 90-minute closed session on May 11, the Rhinelander Common Council terminated the contract of current Administrator Daniel Guild, who’s been on paid administrative leave since his arrest March 8 by Oneida County officials following a months-long investigation into city records.
Guild’s paid leave had been extended until last night’s meeting when his status was again discussed in closed session.
Guild was hired as the city’s fifth administrator in September 2018.
Vruwink was brought on as a “consulting administrator,”
Prior to the vote to terminate Guild, the council voted to extend Vruwink in the administrator’s role until June 30.
Vruwink lost his bid for another term as Rapids mayor last month to challenger Shane Blaser.
