City cuts economic development position
Eliminating the economic development specialist position was not an easy decision for Farmington city administrator David McKnight, but it was a necessary one.
On Monday, McKnight gave economic development specialist Tina Hansmeier the news that her position has been eliminated and her last day with the city will be Monday, Feb. 13. The cut was due to a projected $370,000 budget shortfall in 2013.
"I have a budget hole to fill. That is the reason for this, period," he said.
