In an 8 to 1 vote, the Milton City Council drafted City Planner Randy Jorgenson to become city manager at Thursday's special city council meeting. This decision is subject to contract execution and terms. Since the removal of the previous city manager in April, Jorgenson fulfilled the position as the interim city manager.
The city was in contract negotiations with another candidate when those negotiations fell through last week. Mayor Wesley Meiss called a special meeting to discuss the position to move the issue forward at the executive meeting to be held next Tuesday.
