Formerly of Bloomington, Illinois, David Hales took over as Joliet City Manager this week.
In a statement released Thursday, new Joliet city manager David Hales' actions are cited for alerting authorities to "unlawful activity and taking the appropriate action." Officials in Bloomington are reported to be "stunned that a local newspaper would turn this around and try to impugn one of those responsible for stopping the theft that allegedly occurred."
The Joliet City Council has approved the hiring of David Hales as its new city manager after a nearly 5 month search.
