PAHRUMP, Nev. (AP) - Two months after he was fired as Carlin city manager, Bill Kohbarger has landed a similar job in Pahrump.
Kohbarger was chosen town manager last week from a field of 35
applicants. His new $105,000-a-year job is expected to start June 30 in the town of about 40,000.
In March, the Carlin City Council voted 3-1 to fire Kohbarger, who had been city manager there since August 2000.
The action was taken after a group of residents accused him of using intimidation and claimed his continued employment was detrimental to the community.
