Description

Mayor Michael Kattchee sits at his desk in the new city hall building. Dressed in a suit and tie, he leans back in his chair while focusing to the left side of the frame.

Mayor Kattchee served on the Coralville City Council off and on starting in 1966 until 1977, when he was elected as mayor. He served from 1978 to 1993 (Loventinsky et al., p. 87-88; Iowa City Press-Citizen, 2014).

Kattchee initially lived in Lithuania, but immigrated to the United States in the 1960s. While he was mayor, Coraliville hired the first city administrator to help manage day-to-day responsibilities (Walch, p. 68).
