The longest serving city manager for Riverside has been appointed Moraine's next city manager.

Bryan Chodkowski was named to the post Wednesday by a vote of the mayor and city council. Chodkowski is to officially begin working in Moraine in June.

The appointment ends a national search that began in November following the retirement announcement of Dave Hicks, who had been city manager since 2001.

Chodkowski was Riverside city manager for nine years, according to a statement from the city of Moraine. In Riverside, Chodkowski oversaw a $25 million budget and 120 employees.

He has since 2016 served as town manager in Enfield, Conn., where he oversaw a $63.7 million budget and 450 employees.

"I look forward to working with city council, city staff, as well as the citizens of Moraine to continue moving the city forward within the region," Chodkowski said in a prepared statement.

He has more than 18 years of executive leadership experience in local government, including a stint as village manager in Sparta, Mich., as well as his time in Connecticut and Riverside.

Chodkowski, an Ohio University alum, is a former member of the Dayton Area Mayors and Managers Association.
