The Omaha City Council's chief of staff is stepping down.
Warren Weaver announced Wednesday he will retire from city government on July 19. He has served two decades in city government.
He said in a statement that he made the decision several months ago to retire after helping with the transition to the new council.
City Council President Pete Festersen said Weaver has played an important role in the city's development.
“He has a vast knowledge of city government and his professionalism will be missed at City Hall,” Festersen said.
A council subcommittee will lead the search for Weaver's replacement and make a recommendation to the full council. The process will be completed within the next two to three months.
