Our Brewer City Manager, Steve Bost begin's his 19th year as our municipal administrator. Steve outlast by three years, the second longest administrator, Earle Stevens. Earle served Brewer for 16 years.

Being a city manager can be a tough job, especially when you are working under the wing of about 15 different city councilors. Maybe more, I lost track.
Steve was sworn on 4 May 1999 for just a "short" period of time while the city was in between managers. The city was in sort of a bind while looking to replace the previous short "term" manager.
Steve is the dad to Rowen and Stu/. Wife Amanda, have lived here in Brewer most of his years serving Brewer.

Not to delve too deeply into what are the biggest accomplishments of Manager Bost administration and City Council's are two outstanding matters; First was the city take-over of what was known as the Brewer Water District, which was in some serious difficulty. The other huge accomplishment was the almost complete demolition of the old Eastern Fine Paper Company, which appeared to be heading to a long-time junkyard, as the paper industry continued to slide out of existence.

Along came Pete Vigue of Cianbro, who took command of a great opportunity to put "South Brewer" on the map. Today the old paper mill is a beautiful sight to be held. At one time, there were hundreds and hundreds of employees at the facility. Things have been quiet for a few years now, but things will be looking better, hopefully soon.

The changes that have occurred here in Brewer over the time of Steve's reign have been amazing. Of course, the administration personnel is a major part of the whole way; the system works.We have some of the finest in local government.

In closing, I have mentioned to Steve, he ought to think about writing a book of his experiences as our city manage he may also want to write a book about his days as our city manager, and as a Maine State Senator, and his excitement as the campaign hot-shot for Ross Perot. Ross was the very popular Texan who ran for President against George H.W Bush and Bill Clinton.
