CLINTON — The Clinton City Council hired Jeffrey Horne, current Mitchellville City administrator, today during a special session.

For the past three years, Horne worked in Mitchellville and prior to that was the city administrator in Eldora from 2005 to 2006 and the budget coordinator for Johnson County from 2000 to 2005. Horne, 43, is a native of Iowa City and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science at the University of Iowa and a master’s of business administration at Dominican University in River Forest, Ill.

Today’s selection concludes a two-month search to replace former city administrator Gary Boden, who left after a divided council voted 4-3 to accept his resignation in June.
