Cranley Confirms: City Manager Dohoney to Resign by December 1st
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Cincinnati City Manager Milton Dohoney will resign on or before December 1st when the city gets a new mayor and city council.
Mayor-elect John Cranley made the announcement Wednesday night in a hastily called news conference on Fountain Square.
Dohoney has been in the job for 8 years, picked by outgoing Mayor Mark Mallory and his choice was ratified by a council that, at that time, included Cranley.
During Dohoney's tenure, the city has seen the Banks project come alive downtown, among other things. But, Dohoney is also a key proponent of the streetcar project as well as being an architect of the deal leasing the city's parking assets. A deal that the Port Authority is now pulling out of after Cranley's election and a majority of the incoming council also opposing it.
In announcing Dohoney's resignation, Cranley praised him for his hard work and professionalism and said he plans to have an interim city manager in place when he and the new council are sworn in December 1st.
He says the search for a permanent replacement is now beginning.
