After being named the Bloomington City Manager a month ago, Tim Gleason, was finally sworn in today.
Before the official ceremony he held a meet and greet in council chambers to meet community members and discuss his plans for the future.
Gleason says he is more than happy to begin his new assignment and hopes to be up to speed soon.
“I’ve never walked in the door with that long of an agreement,” Gleason said. “I think I’ve had two years and three years once. Even that is very encouraging that the council says we want this guy for four years. I won’t let them down.”
Gleason says he loves the Bloomington area and hopes to remain here after his contract is up.
