Monroe officials have approved spending up to $50,000 on a search firm to find the city’s next manager and city attorney, spokesman Pete Hovanec said Thursday.

The city council this week hired Developmental Associates of Chapel Hill to handle the searches.

In December, a retired Statesville city manager, Robert Hites, was chosen to be interim manager. He took over for John D’Agostino, who lasted only several months before the council replaced him.

Monroe is looking for its fifth city manager since late 2000.
