Tomanek accepts Bismarck city administrator role; search to begin for assistant position

16 Feb 2024


Jason Tomanek has accepted the Bismarck City Commission's offer to become the next city administrator.

Tomanek has been acting city administrator since the beginning of the year, when his predecessor Keith Hunke retired. He comes to the role after serving as the assistant city administrator since 2016, when he became the second-ever person to hold the job.
