The city of Wenatchee’s finance director announced last week that he is leaving just as the city is heading into murky financial waters.
But Mark Calhoun denies the city’s troubles over how to pay for the $53 million Town Toyota Center are not the reason.
Calhoun is moving on after a 20 year career with the City. He’s accepted a new position with the fledgling city of Spokane Valley which was incorporated in 2004.
Calhoun says the move also brings him closer to where he grew up in Western Montana where his family still resides. Calhoun says his resignation is not in anyway linked to the Town Toyota Center debt issue or the City’s looming budget crisis.
Calhoun’s last day on the job is May 31st. He begins work in Spokane Valley on June 13th.
