The Town of Normal has selected a new assistant city manager.  

Eric Hanson was appointed to fill the role previously held by now City Manager Pam Reece.

In a statement from the town, Reece said Normal is “extremely fortunate” to have Hanson. She said his past local government work will assist the town in achieving its goals.
