Today marks the first official day for Union Gap's newest City Manager.

People got the chance to meet with Rod Otterness, who was hired last month -- Otterness previously served as the City Administrator in  International Falls, Mminnesota.

Otterness says he is excited to help the city grow, and help it maintain it's currenty goals for the future.

"I think what's important to remember is that the vision of this future should be the function of it's residents and their elected officials, not something for a guy from Minnesota to come here to tell you guys how to do it," said Otterness.

Fire Chief Chris Jensen served as the Interim City Manager before Otterness, he will now return to his full time job as Fire Chief.
