City officials share results of BTW feasibility study, update on Downtown Master Plan

Another snippet from Monday's Ec-Dev committee meeting that you might've missed: Sapulpa still does not have an Economic Development Director.

E.B. Thompson reports that a qualified candidate was offered the job late last year and was expected to start at the beginning of January, but something changed and the City is again searching for the best fit. Sapulpa City Manager Joan Riley said the position has been listed as open and that she will be reviewing applications again.

Riley doesn't seem too concerned about the setback, telling the Committee, “I’ve reached out to a few people. It’s going to be alright.” The deadline for applicants is February 22.
