Clinton City Administrator resigns

CLINTON — A week after being asked to submit his resignation, Clinton City Administrator Jeff Horne obliged Friday.

Horne stepped down Friday after Clinton City Council members requested his resignation Monday during a special meeting. Horne’s employment is still pending a resolution from the Clinton City Council.

Mayor Mark Vulich said the Nov. 27 Council meeting will include a discussion on the procedure for selecting a new city administrator.

When reached by the Clinton Herald, Horne declined comment.

Horne’s contract stipulates he will receive six months aggregate salary and six months of family health insurance. The severance will not include any deferred compensation, retirement, car allowance, or IPERS payment.

The Council requested Horne to resign after nearly a month of his absence from City Hall, which he previously attributed to resolving “personal issues.”

According to a memo from Vulich, Council members have formed a special committee in the past during the selection process for hiring a new city administrator.

More discussion during the Nov. 27 meeting will include how the city administrator duties will be handled during the search process, Vulich said.

“For the search process to be successful, it would not be unrealistic to assume that it could be six months before we have a new city administrator,” Vulich said. “The Council needs to make a well-informed decision on the next city administrator.”

Horne was hired by the city in October 2009 with a salary of $95,000. Horne worked as the city administrator for Mitchellville before accepting the position in Clinton.
