SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Scottsdale is looking for its fourth city manager in a little more than four years.
City Manager David Richert submitted his resignation Tuesday, effective immediately.
City officials say Richert felt there wasn't sufficient support by the mayor and city council to remain effective in his position.
The council met with Richert as part of his annual review Monday.
Richert joined the city in 2008 and was city manager the last two years. He replaced John Little, whose contract was terminated by the city council in November 2009.
Little was named city manager in February 2009 after Jan Dolan left in early 2008.
The council now will consider appointing an acting city manager.
