SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - The city of Scottsbluff is in the process of filling a vacancy in their Development Services department with the departure of Annie Folck.
NBC Nebraska has learned that Folck has stepped down as city planner, with last Friday as her last day. City Manager Nathan Johnson says the now-open position may or may not have the title of city planner, but city staff have started a search process to fill the vacancy. Johnson says advertisements are likely to be published by the end of this week or early next week.
Folck has been one of the driving forces in a number of city projects and processes, including development of the 18th Street Downtown Plaza and efforts to revitalize both the downtown business district and East Overland corridor. When contacted by NBC Nebraska about the decision, Folck deferred announcing what she would be doing following her departure from her role with the city.
