Dayton to interview planning associate candidates

Dayton is in the process of hiring a new associate planner. The interview panel will consist of City Councilor Rick Shermer, City Administrator Samantha Orduno, Planning Consultant Tina Goodroad, and Planning Commissioner Paul Kangas.

Orduno said there have been a number of applicants. They will pare that down to 8 to 10 for preliminary interviews which they plan to conduct March 7. A second round of interviews is anticipated with finalists. No applicant names have been released at this time.

The position is a newly created one to replace Erin Stwora’s departure in 2012. However, council redefined the position in scope and salary in contrast to Stwora’s previous position.
