City council appointed Greg Buckley, who is currently serving as the city's assistant city manager. The council spent nearly an hour in executive session before they approved this promotion.
They also voted Thursday to hire an outside agency to help find a permanent city manager.
Buckly is replacing Elizabeth Gray who announced earlier this month that she will be taking a similar position in Sand Springs, Oklahoma.
Buckley will be taking the reigns as city manager on August 16th.
