Seneca to add a museum or two

The city administrator in Seneca received city council approval to re-slot a newly created job position into a museum job. After sharing his vision for Seneca to add a second and, possibly, a third museum, Greg Dietterick got the go ahead to fashion the re-slotted position as someone to take charge of creating the Strickland Museum, on the grounds of the Lunney Museum on S. 1st Street. As described by Dietterick, the individual to be hired will serve alongside Dr. John Martin, Lunney Museum curator. Dietterick made it clear that Martin “is not going anywhere” and is in agreement with the action. To establish the position, Dietterick said he has determined that it’s in the city’s best interests for existing employees to handle a project to transfer the city’s paper records to computer files.
