Iowa Man Takes City Manager Job in Lawrence

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The city manager of Iowa City, Iowa, now will have the same title and responsibilities in Lawrence, Kansas. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that 64-year-old Tom Markus was named Thursday by Lawrence Mayor Mike Amyx and will start his new job March 21 at an annual base salary of $190,000. Markus was chosen from an initial pool of 54 applicants, which then was narrowed to three finalists. The Lawrence City Commission still must approve Markus's employment agreement. The next commission meeting will be next Tuesday. Markus has held the Iowa City job for five years. He succeeds David Corliss, who resigned last June to become town manager of Castle Rock, Colorado.
