Sedona AZ (November 26, 2021) – City Manager Karen Osburn named Andy Dickey as the new public works director/assistant city manager for the city of Sedona.
Dickey’s promotion to public works director/assistant city manager is the result of a reclassification of his current position with added responsibilities. He will now oversee not just the Public Works Department, as he has in his role as public works director for over five years, but also the Parks and Recreation Department and transit program.
Dickey has over 20 years of experience in public works and engineering management, and has worked for the city of Sedona since 2005. While at the city he has held positions as associate engineer, assistant public works director/assistant city engineer, assistant community development director/city engineer, and as mentioned, as the public works director/city engineer.
“Andy has been a rock solid performer and contributor to the organization for many years. He routinely is the public face of the organization as it relates to large-scale initiatives like Sedona In Motion (SIM) and interfaces with the community and City Council addressing complex, high profile and contentious public issues relative to every aspect of building, maintaining and operating the majority of the city’s infrastructure. He is a demonstrated leader with a proven track record and I am pleased to be able to offer him this opportunity,” said Osburn.
“I couldn’t be more excited to make the leap into additional city management, parlaying my role in public works to other areas of City Hall. I look forward to providing continued support to the Public Works Department and also new leadership to our Parks and Recreation Department and transit program and furthering their initiatives,” said Dickey.
Dickey begins this position on Dec. 6, 2021.
