Naperville has been operating without a human resources director for nearly five months, but that’s likely to change soon.

City Attorney Margo Ely, who also served as HR director, stepped down to take a new job in early April. Dwight Pancottine, the city’s labor and employment attorney, initially filled in for Ely on an interim basis, but he has since been reassigned. Deputy City Manager Marcie Schatz is now the acting HR director.

City spokeswoman Linda LaCloche said the job was posted on June 19 and it drew 121 applicants. The field was narrowed to 10 people, who then underwent phone interviews.

“Six were subsequently invited to the first round of interviews and the top two will be interviewed next week,” LaCloche said in an email Friday morning.

The human resources director helps oversee a city staff that currently includes some 929 full-time and 15 part-time employees.
