Update: “Bob”s position isn’t clear, maybe he will be Steve’s assistant. Two interims!

A good source tells me that Robert “Bob” Mahrt has been hired as interim City Manager for Bloomington. He was the interim City Administrator in Lincoln. He quit today with one day notice saying Bloomington needs him NOW.
No word on where that leaves Bloomington’s current Interim City Manager – Steve Rasmussen.
Probably not happy. He was doing three jobs though.
The Council can not vote on hiring him tonight since it isn’t on the agenda.
If Tari and company wanted to keep this a secret, they should have hired somebody from farther away!
