As it begins its presidential search anew, the Columbia Council has named Maggie J. Brown interim president of the Columbia Association.
Charles Rhodehamel had been serving as acting president since Deborah O. McCarty stepped down in May. He also continued to oversee the Columbia Association's division of open space management.
Brown, vice president of community services, will take on the interim job full time tomorrow. Michelle Miller, assistant director of community services, will assume responsibility for that division while Brown is serving as interim president.
The council is seeking to hire someone to oversee the Columbia Association, which provides recreational and other services for the town's 87,000 residents. Last week, it decided to start its search over after the second of three finalists dropped out.
