Sheldon, Iowa — Sheldon’s City Manager Scott Wynja has submitted his resignation.  Wynja made the announcement at the close of Wednesday’s City Council meeting that he has accepted the position of City Manager in Sioux Center.

Wynja began reading the announcement of his resignation, then appeared to choke up, before asking Mayor Katricia Meendering to read it for him.  In the statement, Wynja wrote that it’s hard for him to leave Sheldon, but he had accepted the opportunity to return to the town where he grew up.

Wynja talked to KIWA, and he described the Sioux Center job as the only position for which he could envision himself leaving Sheldon.

Current Sioux Center City Manager Paul Clousing is set to retire at the end of the year, a timetable which Wynja says should help with a smooth transition.

Wynja says the decision to take the Sioux Center post was a family decision.  He noted that his three daughters have never lived anywhere but Sheldon.

Wynja has been Sheldon’s City Manager since 2002, when he replaced former City Manager Allen Johnson.  Prior to that time he served as Sheldon’s Parks & Recreation Director, taking over that position in 1995.


Sheldon, Iowa — Sheldon City Manager Scott Wynja is leaving his position with the City, it was announced during today’s noon City Council meeting.  We’ll have more details after the meeting.
