Dietterick given Key to the City

There is no need for the City of Seneca to change the locks when long time City Administrator Greg Dietterick retires on Friday. That’s because at their meeting Tuesday night, the Seneca City Council presented him with a key to the city, tells Mayor Dan Alexander. “The city council gave Greg a key to the city and it is pretty neat, it is something that he can display in his home. But we had an opportunity to thank Greg for the 20 years of service here in Seneca and his contributions to this community. If you know Greg you know he always says ‘I want to leave it better than when I came’ and he has definitely worked very hard to make that happen. Each one of the council members had something to say to Greg on a personal note and gave him a thank you note on behalf of the city. So, that was very special, I thought, having them all there to be able to thank him. Then Utilities Director Bob Faires got up and spoke for all the department heads saying some really nice things.” The City of Seneca invites the public to a drop-in on Friday, June 29, to celebrate the retirement of Dietterick. It takes place from 2-4pm in Council Chambers of Seneca City Hall at 221 East North 1st Street. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
