GREENVILLE — Following an executive session at the close of Tuesday's regular agenda, the Greenville City Council returned to the regular session and voted 4-3 to hire a firm to conduct a search for a new city manager.

Director of Public Works Massoud Ebrahim was apointed in May as the interim city manager for the City of Greenville, in the wake of the Council terminating former city manager Steven Alexander’s contract.

Director of Human Resources Barry Robinson previously told the Council the process of finding a new, permanent city manager could take at least four months, depending on whether the Council chose to employ a search firm or employ from within.
