Following a comprehensive search and interview process, the mayor and City Council announced their selection of Lindy Crawford to serve as the next city manager for the city of White Bear Lake. Crawford will vacate her current position as city administrator/public utilities general manager for the city of Mora, where she has served since 2018. Prior to her time in Mora, Crawford was city administrator for the city of Tonka Bay. Her first official day of duty in White Bear Lake will be Dec. 20, 2021.

“Lindy is an excellent fit for the organization and the community,” said Mayor Jo Emerson. “Her talent, energy and commitment to public service are the characteristics we sought and found in Lindy."

Crawford was among five finalists selected by the mayor from a field of 13 semifinalists. A consulting firm vetted a total of 33 applicants to provide the semifinal list.

Crawford is replacing Ellen Hiniker, who is retiring from city management on Dec. 17 after 21 years of service to the city of White Bear Lake, the last six as city manager.
