Jeff Dygert said Friday will mark 22 years he has worked for the city of Auburn. It will also mark his first day as Auburn’s newest full-time city manager. The Auburn City Council voted unanimously Thursday to give the position to Dygert, a longtime veteran of the Auburn Fire Department who had served as fire chief since 2011.
Dygert replaces Doug Selby, who resigned from the position in April after about 4.5 years as Auburn’s city manager. He was appointed by Selby in March to act as interim city manager and was later identified as the top candidate for the full-time job by the council.
