CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) - A veteran municipal employee who served as interim city manager during the latest Corpus Christi boil-water crisis has been named permanent city manager.

The Corpus Christi City Council on Tuesday selected Margie Rose.

Rose in June was appointed interim city manager following the May resignation of Ron Olson amid lingering water supply problems.

Residents of Corpus Christi had to deal with three boil-water issues in the past year due to problems with chlorine disinfectant levels in the supply. The latest boil-water order for the city of more than 300,000 was issued May 13 and then lifted May 25.

Rose has more than 29 years of local government management experience. She was named assistant city manager in 2002, then appointed deputy city manager in mid-2014.
