IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- City council members in Iowa City have chosen their next city manager.

Thomas Markus,  who is currently the city manager of Birmingham, Michigan, was selected for the position Wednesday.

 "Four excellent candidates came to town, and the Council was impressed with all of them. By the end of the interview and input process, it was clear that Tom Markus was the person to hire. The entire Council agreed that Tom's experience, creativity and poise make him an excellent fit. We are excited to bring him to Iowa City," said Mayor Matt Hayek.

Assistant City Manager Dale Helling has been serving as interim city manager since the council fired Michael Lombardo in 2009.
