SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - The Scottsdale City Council has selected Fritz Behring to be the new city manager.

Behring has been Pinal County's manager and also has been city manager in two Florida cities and one in Nebraska.

City officials announced the selection Wednesday.

Behring was 1 of 3 finalists for the Scottsdale job, which attracted 50 applicants in a nationwide search.

The other two were former Tempe City Manager Charlie Meyer and Tom Wilson, the assistant city manager for development services in Palm Springs, Calif.

Last July, Scottsdale City Manager David Richert resigned after two years on the job. At the time, he said he didn't feel there was enough support from the mayor and councilors for him to be effective.
