After an executive session Monday evening, Dublin City Council selected Terry Foegler to fill the vacant city manager's position over three other finalists.

Council directed the city administration to draw up a contract to hire Foegler, effective March 1. Council will formally appoint him to the post during its Feb. 2 meeting.

According to information on the city's Web site, Foegler's contract will include a base salary of $180,000, with $16,500 in deferred compensation and a $6,000 annual car allowance.

His predecessor, Jane Brautigam, earned a salary of $151,502.54, with incentives pushing her total annual compensation to $189,318.07. Brautigam left Dublin in September for the city manager's job in Boulder, Colo.

Foegler recently worked as president of Ohio State University's Campus Partners for Community Urban Development. He served as Dublin's director of planning and development from 1990 to 1996.

Council interviewed Foegler and the other finalists on Saturday. He was selected over Dublin deputy city manager and director of economic development Dana McDaniel, Petaluma, Calif., city manager Michael Bierman and Troy, Mich., city manager Phillip Nelson.

Marsha Grigsby, deputy city manager and director of finance, has been serving as Dublin's interim city manager.
