CINCINNATI (AP) - Cincinnati City Council says it has unanimously approved a former Baltimore finance director as city manager.

In his new role, Harry Black will serve as the chief administrator of Cincinnati and will be responsible for day-to-day city operations.

Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley nominated Black in July, touting his expertise and experience in a city that has dealt with budget and pension challenges. Black served as finance director in Baltimore since January 2012, where he oversaw a $3.3 billion budget.

Black says he pledges to work with the Cincinnati community and keep the city’s momentum going.

Black will take over for interim City Manager Scott Stiles, who has served in that role since Milton Dohoney stepped down as city manager after Cranley took office in December. Black will begin Sept. 8.
