 The City of Newkirk has hired an assistant city manager as Jeremy Frazier will be starting with the city August 4.

 Frazier has a Masters in Business Administration from UCO and is currently working with the City of Newkirk as a Retirement Plan Administrator.

 “We are excited to have Jeremy on board,” city manager Jason Orr told the commissioners at Monday night’s meeting.  “He’s excited to get started.”

 Frazier’s duties will include code enforcement as well as working with city crews on various projects as well as assisting Orr in various duties.

 “He’ll be busy,” Orr said.  “Just a reminder, his title is assistant city manager but he won’t be an administrator all the time.  He’ll be busy doing a lot of different things out in the field.”

 Orr asked the commissioners to create the position to assist young people who want to get into public administration.

 The position became available when Richard Hinthorn moved from Public Works to the Fire Department.
