Benson, who joined the city of Shawnee in August of 2018, said the search for a new city manager has been suspended temporarily but he fully expects they will take up the decision again early next fall. The mayor and commissioners also announced the development of an assistant city manager position, assigning those responsibilities to Chance Allison. Allison was hired as the city's finance director/treasurer in May of 2018.
