Search for new IC city manager pushed to 2010

IOWA CITY (AP)--Iowa City's search for a new city manager has been pushed to 2010.

The Iowa City Council has delayed hiring a replacement for Mike Lombardo, who was fired in April without explanation, because three council seats will be up in this year's election.

Several council members say they believe it would be better for the new council to direct the search.

Iowa City mayor Regenia Bailey has refused to discuss why Lombardo was fired just nine months after he took the job.

Longtime assistant city manager Dale Helling has filled in as interim city manager.
