City Hunts For New ED Manager


The City of Dauphin is on the hunt for a new Economic Development Manager after parting ways with Brian Baker last week.

Mayor Allen Dowhan said the move was necessary as council was not seeing the results it was hoping for. “And people just became frustrated, you know, there was no results at all,” Dowhan said.

Council is also taking advantage of the opportunity to shift the focus of the Economic Development department to fall more in line with the city’s focus on sustainability.

“We’re falling behind in the sustainable development and we want to probably combine some of the sustainability opportunities that we have with economic development,” Mayor Allen Dowhan said.

“So it’s going to be a special type of cat. I don’t know if we have it around here in Manitoba, but we are going to concentrate on Manitoba for an individual.”
