APPLE VALLEY • Town Manager Frank Robinson is a finalist for a city manager position in Iowa, marking at least his fourth attempt to take another job since coming to Apple Valley less than three years ago.

Robinson is one of two candidates in the running to take the helm of West Des Moines, according to a release posted Monday on the city’s website. He’s up against a city manager from Mountain Village, Colo., with both men sharing their vision for the growing Iowa city during a public reception there Monday morning.

In the fall, Robinson was one of five finalists to become city manager of Round Rock, Texas. He’d previously been a candidate for a city manager position in Harlingen, Texas, and to become president of the Center City Commission in Memphis, Tenn.
