It’s official, we have a city manager

Friday, February 2, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

After more than a year and a rather awkward hiring process, Austin officially has a new city manager. City Council voted unanimously to finalize the hiring process Thursday, extending a $325,000 salary to the current city administrator in Minneapolis, Spencer Cronk. His official start date is Feb. 12. Interim City Manager Elaine Hart is now free to return to her position as chief financial officer for the city.
