Mayor Chester Sowell announced the appointment of Jerry Corbin as Dothan's interim city manager.
Corbin, a 15-year city employee, will serve until a permanent replacement is hired.
He is set to begin work in the new position on Nov. 28 or if Rubin leaves to take his fire chief position in Atlanta early.
Corbin has had some experience as acting city manager, filling in on occasion during several commission meetings.
But he says he's not sure whether he will seek the position permanently.
