Palestine City Council appoints Interim City Manager

PALESTINE, June 19, 2013--The Palestine City Council has made the decision to appoint Palestine Economic Development Corporations Director Wendy Ellis as the Interim City Manager.

“I’m certainly honored that Council would have the trust in me to step in there and do the best that we can,” said Ellis. “Our goal is just to do whatever we can to make the best things possible for the city.”

Current City Manager Mike Ohrt, who announced his resignation earlier this week, will remain in the position until July 12. Ellis will step in as Interim City Manager at that time.
