Durant City Manager won't renew contract

DURANT, Okla. (KXII) - There's about to be a change in city officials in Durant by the end of the year.

Durant City Manager Tim Rundel says he told the city council he won't seek an extension when his contract expires in December.

In April, Rundel was one of six finalists to fill the city manager position in Norman, but was told they were going to hire someone else.

Durant Mayor Oden Grube said in a facebook post Rundel's role could be filled sooner if someone is hired before December 11.

Rundel was chosen to be Durant City Manager in October 2016.
