For the second year in a row, the city of Gladstone is ending the year looking for a new City Manager.
Michael Wiesner resigned from the job last night, effective today.
And the City Commission accepted his resignation.
He didn’t give a reason for his desire to leave after having been on the job since February.
Wiesner’s contract calls for him to receive severance benefits.
That includes 4 months’ pay and reimbursement for things like unused vacation time and sick time.
Gladstone’s City Treasurer, Darla Belkin, also serves as assistant city manager.
She’ll take over Wiesner’s job duties until a permanent replacement is hired.
Wiesner’s predecessor as city manager, Brant Kucera, left the U.P. in October 2008 for a similar job in Pennsylvania, his original home state.
