The Dalles To Test Business Recruitment Specialist

The City of The Dalles is going to hire a business recruitment specialist for six months to test its effectiveness.  Mayor Steve Lawrence says one thing The Dalles has lacked is someone who goes out and aggressively promotes The Dalles as a destination for businesses.  Lawrence says the recruiter will be asked to target certain business sectors.  He uses as an example South Wasco County, where recent work by recruiter Mike Davis has brought in businesses to Tygh Valley and Wamic.  Lawrence isn’t sure if six months is enough of a test period to determine the effectiveness of a business recruiter, but he and City Manager Nolan Young will ask for more time if they feel like it can be successful.
