AZTEC — The Aztec City Commission has appointed parks director Steve Mueller as the interim city manager.

Commissioner Sheri Rogers announced the decision during a San Juan County Commission meeting Tuesday evening. The Aztec City Commission had a closed executive session on Monday.

Mueller will serve as interim city manager until a firm hired by the city finds another interim city manager.

Aztec City Manager Joshua Ray resigned in September after accepting a job in Texas. The City Commission has decided to wait until after the March elections before it begins searching for a new city manager.
