North Butler Board of Education voted McPherson and Jacobson, LLC, to search for the next superintendent of the district Monday.

Out of three research firms – including Trent Grundmeyer of Ankeny and Dean Meier Consulting Firm of Cedar Falls – McPherson and Jacobson were chosen in a 5-1 vote.

Grundmeyer, though, nearly was picked beforehand when Board member Kristy Lammers made a motion for him. A 3-3 deadlock, however, turned it over to a McPherson motion that was carried out.
