The Iowa City City Council approved a resolution to eliminate the current assistant to the city manager position and add an new assistant to the city manager position during the council meeting Tuesday night.

The measure passed 7-0.

City Manager Tom Markus recommended the change as a cost-saving measure, resulting in an approximate annual savings of $26,475.

The change will provide for internal growth and provide a succession plan for future openings for the city manager position, according to the council.

The changes will go into effect after current Assistant City Manager Dale Helling’s retirement.
