Newton without planning director

July 11, 2012

Four months after Newton hiring someone to lead the planning department, the city is without a planning director.

Newton hired Christine Bartleson effective March 12, but after a three month review of the position, it is vacant again, said Newton City Manager Todd Clark. Bartleson replaced former planning director and assistant city manager Glenn Pattishall who was the first person to hold the position in Newton. He retired after more than 28 years of service to the city.

Now Clark said he is evaluating the position.
