Council appoints Harry Black as city manager
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Cincinnati officially has a new city manager.
City Council members voted unanimously Wednesday to appoint Harry Black. Black comes from Baltimore where he served as finance director. He said he wants to put a ten year financial plan in place in Cincinnati, as he did in Baltimore.
"I am humbled and honored to have been chosen," Black said in a release. "I want to thank Mayor Cranley and the City Council for this incredible opportunity. The magnitude of this assignment is not lost on me. I plan to give all I have to the City of Cincinnati. This is a city on the rise, and I pledge to work in partnership with all segments of our community to keep this great momentum going. On behalf of my family, I want to express our gratitude to the entire Cincinnati community for your hospitality and warm welcome. We are looking forward to becoming full-fledged Cincinnatians."
Black will take over the position on September 8. Scott Stiles has been serving as city manager since Milton Dohoney left in December. He will return to his position as assistant city manager.
