MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot City Council President Mark Jantzer says the experience of the incoming city manager will be valuable as the community continues its recovery from the 2011 Souris River flood.

Fifty-seven-year-old Lee Staab graduated with an engineering degree from the West Point military academy and later earned his master’s degree in engineering from the University of Illinois.

He worked for the Corps of Engineers for 28 years before spending more than seven years in private industry. He has made more than 50 trips in connection with his work to Iraq, Afghanistan and the United Arab Emirates.

The City Council officially hired Staab for the city manager job at a special meeting on Friday. He’ll replace the retired David Waind. He starts his duties on Sept. 15.
