Jonathon Pogge-Weaver resigns his Benson City Council seat
Swift County Administrator Mike Pogge-Weaver, 39, has been hired by the city of Carroll, Iowa, as its new city manager. It is expected that he will start his new job in October.
Pogge-Weaver grew up in Fort Dodge, Iowa, just 60 miles to the northwest of Carroll. The city is the county seat of Carroll County and a town of just over 10,100 people.
Swift County’s Board of Commissioners has already started the process to find a new administrator agreeing to hire Twin Cities’ professional search firm Springsted at its meeting last Tuesday.
With Pogge-Weaver leaving, the Benson City Council will also lose one of its members. His husband, Jonathon Pogge-Weaver, was elected to a four-year term on the council in November 2015 and began his term in January. He also works as a pharmacy tech at Breen’s Pharmacy.
