Deputy City Manager Tony St. Romaine will temporarily serve as interim director for Columbia’s Information Technology Department.

St. Romaine replaces Bob Simms, who resigned after 12 years. He’ll eventually have to find an IT Director that can handle the challenges of an expanding technology field. St. Romaine is trying to find an update to the position that had stability for more a decade.
