Milton Public Director Chris Lagerbloom is being asked to step into the breach once again.
The City Council on Wednesday will ask Lagerbloom to fill in as city manager until an interim can be found. Wednesday is the last day for City Manager Billy Beckett, who resigned after five months on the job.
Lagerbloom said he hopes this stint is shorter than the eight-month term he served as city manager late last year and early this year. Lagerbloom took the reins of day-to-day management of Milton government after the first city manager resigned under fire.
“The mayor is talking to people as interims who are qualified,” Lagerbloom said. “They just couldn’t be here as soon as we needed them to be. I don’t anticipate this will as long as last time.”
