The city of Columbus is looking for a new city engineer.
Our news gathering partners at "The Republic" report Dave Hayward informed Mayor Kristen Brown and the City Council of his resignation Wednesday night.
The paper reports Mayor Brown informed council members in an email that Hayward "was approached by his former engineering firm (sounds like others too) with a comp package that greatly exceeds his compensation with the city."
Brown says a search for Hayward replacement will begin and said "this may be one where I come back to you again to adjust the salary."
The mayor went on to say in the email that she is not hopeful that the city can find an engineer as qualified as Hayward with the current cap, but the city will do their best.
