New city administrator welcomes opportunity

Travis Goedken started his duties as Humboldt's new city administrator on Jan. 11, after finishing up his city administrator work in Cherryvale, KS, population 2,367, on Friday, Jan. 8. Goedken said he is just getting into working with the budget. He will be looking at trends and fund balances, transfers, and receipts and disbursements. He said there are some budget items that present some concerns. He also said the city is in a good position from the standpoint that there is still debt capacity available. More than anything, Goedken wants the public to know that he has an open door policy about people stopping by City Hall and visiting about any issue or concern they may have, or just popping in to say hello and introduce themselves.“I want to encourage residents to meet me. I love talking to the public and enjoy listening to their concerns, and then taking those concerns to the Council and see what can be done to address them,” Goedken said.
