The city of Dayton has officially announced that City Manager Warren Price has resigned. At a press conference Tuesday afternoon, Mayor Nan Whaley would only say that Price was stepping down for personal reasons, but that his resignation on Monday was unexpected.
"Our job is to accept that decision and move forward and move the organization forward, which is what we’re committed to doing,” she told reporters.
Price was hired in January for the city’s top job. He replaced former manager Tim Riordan, who resigned after leading the city for five years.
