Committee members ID’d by blog as Geneva seeks out next city manager

A little more clarity. After this weekend residents and taxpayers have a better idea about the future of their community. Since the departure of former City Manager Matt Horn – questions have swirled around the individuals who have applied; as well as the individuals identified by city leadership, as the folks who will make the decision.

City managers are tasked with running the day-to-day operation of a municipality that qualifies as a ‘city’. It’s a straightforward definition, but over the last several weeks — questions have swirled in the City of Geneva.

Until this weekend, the list of individuals who will be tasked with selecting a possible city manager remained unknown.
