Janet Frazier, who recently retired as Columbia's controller, accepted the role of interim finance director, City Manager Mike Matthes announced Wednesday.

A city news release said that Frazier is a good choice because she's knowledgeable about Columbia operations. She will support the finance staff part-time while the city undergoes a nationwide recruitment effort to find a replacement for former finance director Michele Nix.

"We are glad that Janet agreed to come back to lead the team until we find a person to fill the director position permanently," Matthes said in the release.

Community Relations Director Steven Sapp did not return a call for comment. The Missourian was unable to learn how much the city will pay Frazier.

Nix served Columbia for two years but resigned to take a job with the California Public Employees Retirement System, the largest public pension fund in the United States.

The recruitment efforts to find her successor will begin this month with the goal of finding a successful candidate by early 2019.

Supervising editor is Scott Swafford.
