PAUL ECKERT WILL STAY IN SIOUX CITY FOR NOW…

SIOUX CITY—It looks as though Sioux City’s City Manager will stick around a while longer.
A Michigan man has beaten out Paul Eckert to be chosen as Iowa City’s new city manager.
The City Council announced Wednesday that Thomas Markus would take the job.
Markus is the city manager in Birmingham, Mich.
Iowa City Mayor Matt Hayek says “it was clear” that Markus was the candidate to hire. The mayor says Markus has “experience, creativity and poise.”
Officials say Markus and the city are working out employment details and formal action from the City Council is due later.
The City Council fired the last city manager, Michael Lombardo, in April 2009.
