CORRECTION: Vanderhorst HAS ACCEPTED THE POSITION OF FINANCE DIRECTOR OF THE CITY OF HAMILTON - Not Middleton as orginally reported.
Vanderhorst had recently also applied to be Loveland's next city manager, but withdrew his name from consideration when Hamilton offered him the position. He said that the opportunity to work in the much larger city was too attractive an opportunity to pass up. His last day on the job in Loveland will be August 15.
Hamilton has a population of around 62,000.
Loveland is still operating under Interim City Manager, David Duckworth. City council interviewed candidates on July 19, and met again on July 21 to discuss the candidates, however no action or announcements have been made.
