Lakewood Mayor Don Anderson said Tuesday that John Caulfield has accepted terms to become the new city manager of Pierce Countys second-largest city.
Caulfield, the 48-year-old city manager of Mountlake Terrace, will begin his new job Sept. 3. Caulfield is required to give 60 days of notice to his current employer.
The contract still needs to be drawn up and approved by the full council, and its unclear at this time when that would occur. Anderson declined to reveal Caulfields base salary because the contract is pending. The council was unanimous in voting to begin contract negotiations with Caulfield.
