POST FALLS - Post Falls city finance director Shelly Enderud was designated the interim city administrator during Tuesday night's City Council meeting.

Eric Keck recently resigned as city administrator after six years to accept the new chief operating officer position at Post Falls-based mining equipment manufacturer Ground Force Worldwide.

Keck will remain at the city through the end of the month. Enderud will be acting administrator starting Sept. 1 and will continue her duties as finance director.

Enderud and Keck have worked together on the budget and other city administrative matters for the past six years.

"I believe this will provide the city with a smooth transition," Mayor Clay Larkin said. "Shelly has been with the city for 15 years and has proven to be a capable, competent and committed professional. She is an effective leader and valuable department head. The city is fortunate to have people on staff, like Shelly, to fill this important position within our organization."

Enderud is eligible to become a credentialed city manager.

"I am honored and excited to have this opportunity," Enderud said. "I have been very fortunate to have worked for two city administrators - Eric Keck and Jim Hammond - who mentored and encouraged me."

Keck praised Enderud's growth as a leader over the past several years.

"It has been a pleasure to see Shelly expand her leadership knowledge and character during my tenure," Keck said.

Enderud received her master's degree in business administration from Gonzaga University. Her awards and honors include: Idaho State Building Authority Commission, Kootenai County United Way board president and River City Leadership Academy graduate.

Enderud and the city have received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association every year since 1998.

Kit Hoffer, city spokeswoman, said Enderud will likely serve as interim city administrator for at least three months. It remains unclear if or how the city will conduct a search for the job.

"This (designation) will give the mayor and council some breathing room on making a decision," Hoffer said.
