Auburn City Manager Jeff Dygert announced his retirement plans during a City Council budget presentation on Thursday. Dygert, who has served as city manager since 2016, revealed that he will retire at the end of his contract in June 2025, concluding a 31-year career with the city. He proposed adding a new position to the city’s budget for the last six months of his tenure to ensure a smooth transition to his successor.

Dygert, who started his career with the city as a firefighter in 1994 and later became fire chief in 2011, took over as city manager after serving as interim following Doug Selby’s departure. His tenure has seen significant administrative continuity and development within Auburn’s municipal operations.

The proposal for a transition plan received initial support from Auburn Mayor Jimmy Giannettino, who emphasized the importance of allowing time for Dygert’s successor to acclimate to the new role.
