City of Ida Grove names administrator

Marc Dennison of Waunakee, Wis., has accepted the position of Ida Grove city administrator. Dennison will start no later than May 1 (pending background and reference checks). The city council approved April 3 a $65,000 per year salary, three weeks a year in vacation and $3,000 in net moving expenses. Dennison has previously been economic development director and village administrator in two villages in Wisconsin. He has bachelor degrees in political science and public administration and a master’s degree in public administration. City Councilmen Scott Tomlinson and Doug Clough abstained from the vote. Councilman Clough was a candidate for the position who withdrew from consideration last week. Clough commented that it would be in the best interest of the city if he remain with Midwest Industries and stay on the council and work with an experienced city administrator.
