Dickinson city engineer resigns amid rapid growth

DICKINSON, N.D. - City Engineer Shawn Soehren tendered his resignation at Monday’s Dickinson City Commission meeting, citing a high workload and high stress as the oil boom has spurred city growth.

He told the Commission gathered at City Hall that he would like his last official day to be Oct. 15, but will help with the transition to a new city engineer.

Commissioner Shirley Dukart asked Soehren if his departure was due to being overworked.

“Numerous issues, I guess,” Soehren replied. “Certainly the workload and the feeling that I can’t satisfy everything.”

Engineering is in charge of infrastructure, building inspection, planning and zoning and other development-related issues.
