COUNCIL TWEAKS GIS POSITION FOR NEW HIRE: ‘Brad has made so much progress in this department’

March 27, 2014

COLUMBIA CITY — Recently, Columbia City’s Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Coordinator Brad Smith announced he would be leaving his position at the city.

After several years, and what officials called “great strides” in the city’s GIS program, Smith is moving on to a job in the private sector.
Preparing for the hiring process, city officials voted to fine-tune the position’s job description before replacing Smith.

Columbia City Department heads Shawn Lickey and Jeff Walker worked together to revise the job description, and the changes were accepted by unanimous vote by the City Council Tuesday night.

Lickey and Walker added specific qualifications, such as experience in HTML coding and stronger background, including four years of experience or a degree in the field.
