Dayton has a new city manager. Warren Price will take over January 12. He replaces Tim Riordan, who is retiring.
Price comes from Canton, where he held several positions including Directory of Safety, and Chief of Staff - Canton's equivalent to a city manager. He's also an attorney.
Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley says this is the first time in 12 years a city manager has come from outside city ranks.
Price earned his law degree at Akron. He also served in the U.S. Navy for three years.
