Will Albert Lea’s city manager take a job in Colorado for less pay?

Albert Lea City Manager Victoria Simonsen apparently must decide whether to stay in Minnesota or take a new job as town administrator in Lyons, Colo.

She’s reportedly been offered the Colorado job, which comes with an annual salary of $82,000. Her salary in Albert Lea for next year is scheduled to be $100,341.

The Albert Lea Tribune  had no luck contacting Simonsen, but Albert Lea Mayor Mike Murtaugh said she’d been offered the new job but has not officially accepted it.

The paper said she has been city manager in Albert Lea since 2004 and was an administrator for Fort Morgan, Colo., from 2000 to 2004.
