Rachel Tabelski has been selected to become the new permanent Batavia City Manager.
City Council will vote on her appointment at its meeting Monday night.
Tabelski has been serving as Interim City Manager since the departure of Martin Moore in August of 2019.
If approved by Council, Tabelski’s annual salary will become $110,000 plus benefits.
City Council went through a search process using the same company that found Moore in 2018. Moore lasted one year in the job.
City Hall officials said the choice came down to two candidates, one of them Tabelski, who was said had the support of Council President Gene Jankowski from the beginning
Tabelski has held a series of politically appointed jobs including as a legislative aide to Assemblyman Steve Hawley, communications director with the county’s Economic Development Center and stint with the Batavia Development Corporation.
Her husband, Adam Tabelski was a former Batavia City Councilman who had to resign his seat when Rachel entered the management ranks at City Hall.
