The Canby City Council has selected Regan Bolli, of Ephraim, Utah, to be the new city administrator.
The council last week authorized Mayor Brian Hodson to negotiate with Bolli and make an offer contingent upon successful completion of a background investigation.
Council selected Bolli from the four finalists who visited Canby last week for a reception and interviews. The city received 25 applicants to fill the job left vacant when Greg Ellis resigned in March.
Bolli most recently served four years as city manager at Ephraim, a city of about 6,100 residents in central Utah.
He also was a finalist in recent months for similar posts in Hermiston, population about 16,000, and Loveland, Ohio, population, 12,081.
According to his Snow College alumnus page, Bolli joined the Utah Army National Guard after graduating from Manti High School. After basic training, he served a two-year mission to Sydney, Australia, for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Upon completing the mission, he attended Snow College where he was an officer in the Associated Mens Society and the Latter-day Saint Student Association and graduated with an associate degree.
He met Erin Allen at Snow and they married Dec. 29, 2000.
He next attended Brigham Young University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies.
He earned his law degree from the University of Denver, Sturm College.
He worked as a clerk in the Denver District Court and worked for the law firms of Wachsmann and Associates in Denver and Hanson, Wright, Eddy & Haws in Pleasant Grove, Utah.
He has taught as an adjunct professor of business law at Snow College and served on the Utah Local Governments Trust Advisory Committee and on the board of directors of the Leavitt Center for Politics & Public Service, Southern Utah University.
He and his wife have five children.
