It has been announced on The Gazette website that the

descriptions in his office were changed and the position was created,
and will now be leaving Iowa City for a job position he has accepted located in Kansas.

position and decided it would be a better use of the position to work
directly with the city manager as someone that would eventually be able
to serve as city manager.

City High School. He submitted his letter of resignation yesterday
explaining his decision to take the new position in Manhattan, Kansas.
