Wally Bobkiewicz, who has served as Evanston’s City Manager since 2009, received the green light for another year from City Council last week. At the Oct. 23 City Council meeting, Mayor Stephen Hagerty said Council met in executive session on Oct. 5 “to complete the evaluation of our City Manager, Wally Bobkiewicz.

“The majority found that the City Manager exceeded expectation in seven of nine categories … and in others he scored moderately lower than last year,” the Mayor said. He also said there was “general praise” for Mr. Bobkiewicz’s leadership and strategic planning.  The evaluation marked the completion of nine years of service for Mr. Bobkiewicz, making him the second-longest serving City Manager in Evanston history.
