City Manager Appoints Three People To Key Positions


Three people are appointed to fill key positions as part of the city manager's reorganization plan.

Yakima City Manager Tony O’Rourke has selected Sean Hawkins to become Yakima’s Economic Development Manager, Steve Osguthorpe to serve as Community Development Director, and longtime City staff member Joan Davenport to serve in a new role as Strategic Projects Manager.

The appointments of Hawkins, Osguthorpe, and Davenport are part of an ongoing City reorganization plan approved by the City Council earlier this year.

The three are expected to begin their new jobs on November 5th.
