UPDATE: Vruwink hired as Rhinelander city administrator

Following a 15-minute open session discussion, the Rhinelander Common Council voted unanimously Wednesday evening to approve an employment agreement the city's administrative team negotiated with former Wisconsin Rapids Mayor Zach Vruwink to serve as Rhinelander city administrator.

Vruwink has been involved in Rhinelander government since May 2020 when he was hired as a consultant. Later, he served as a special assistant to the mayor.

According to press release issued by the city Tuesday, negotiations began immediately after the council's unanimous vote Feb. 23 authorizing the administrative team to reach out to the primary candidate as identified by the search process.

That candidate was later identified as Vruwink.

Vruwink, whose current engagement contract with the city ended on February 28, was the top candidate following a comprehensive search process, according to the release.

A full story on the hiring will be published in the Tuesday edition of the River News.

The meeting is available to view at
