By Karen M. Jorgensen
There is a new face in the administrator's office at the West Concord City Hall this week.
The city council last week hired Jake Dickson to fill the position that has been vacant since Theresa Booms' resignation earlier this year.
"I'm super excited," Dickson told the council after his hiring was approved.
A native Minnesotan, he comes to West Concord with seven years of administrative and management experience.
He earned his bachelors degree in political science with a minor in urban planning from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. His most recent employment was with PAM Transport in Tontitown, AR.
His previous experience includes working as a community development intern for the city of Robbinsdale, MN. He was also an administrative specialist for Arkansas Rehabilitation Services and housing manager/monitor for the Salvation Army.
