The key to success will be encouraging investors to commit their time and money to downtown Dover, said Dover City Manager Scott Koenig. That includes not only Loockerman Street, but also side streets to the north and south, he said. "We're in a transition," Koenig said. "There's been investment in parts of the downtown, such as the library, Wesley College and the new courthouse, but these are large scale projects." Those projects have meant a combined investment of almost $111 million by the city, Wesley College and Kent County. But other types of investment are needed, Koenig added. "There is significant need for medium- and small-scale development," he said. "We need to run the gamut of all kinds of downtown redevelopment. There already has been significant public investment, but there still is room for significant improvement." That includes projects outside the immediate downtown area, such as solving the flooding problem along Water Street, which could cost up to $15 million; replacing aging water lines; and burying utility lines along Division Street to improve the visual aesthetics of the roadway. "These are expensive projects, in some cases requiring public investment that needs to happen over time," Koenig said.
...
This was somewhat successful, garnering interest for about 20 projects, Koenig said. "It would be great if we had a large number of people investing in the program," he said.
...
While the city would welcome commercial redevelopment, Koenig said housing also cannot be overlooked when it comes to establishing a Downtown Development District. "We need to strike a balance between business and housing stock that people can afford to live in," he said. "What we want to do is improve the quality of our building stock downtown, with new, modern buildings that meet codes, as well as trying to meet the needs for different levels of affordable housing. What we don't want to do is convert it to all-commercial districts and move all the people living there out." Having people live within a short distance of where they work is an appealing scenario, Koenig said. "For a city the size of Dover, the potential of having people living there and being able to walk to work is attractive," he said. New commercial development and improvements to the downtown housing supply also will help deter crime, giving police a chance to focus their efforts elsewhere, Koenig added.

Dover City Manager Scott Koenig has recommended raises for four key staff members to reflect either the additional duties they had taken on or for promotions they had received since a reorganization of managerial staff back in December 2011.
Koenig made his recommendations at Dover City Council's Legislative, Finance & Administration Committee meeting held Monday night in City Hall.
The Legislative, Finance & Administration Committee voted 3-1, with one absent, to recommend approval of Koenig's request to Dover City Council.
Koenig said the city saved about $215,000 in annual salary by implementing an interim managerial plan in late 2011, but he wanted to compensate four staff members who had since taken on additional duties or permanent assignments since that time by increasing their salaries by a combined $30,274.
In 2011, for instance, Director of Planning & Community Development Ann Marie Townshend accepted the additional duties of overseeing life safety, building inspections and the Economic Development Office, Koenig said.
...
Koenig then asked Townshend to become the parks & recreation head in addition to her planning duties, with the exception of Dover Public Library Director Margie Cyr, who became a direct report to the city manager as part of the changes, Koenig said.

...
Her duties as head of two departments had allowed the city to save at least $81,000 per year, Koenig said. But, to fairly compensate her, he recommended that Townshend's salary be increased 16.93 percent to $107,315, including her managerial bonus of $4,200 and $11,340 for her parks & recreation duties.
Townshend addressed the legislative committee to clarify the proposal she had made to Koenig relative to her salary, which she requested as compensation for increased hours at the office. Townshend pointed out that, technically speaking, she requested a 16.9 percent salary increase, but if the bonus was factored in, the increase was 11.8 percent over her current compensation, she said.
Townshend said she had enthusiastically accepted her additional duties. Among other things, she worked to reverse declining revenues for the parks & recreation department while working with the business community to simplify the zoning process, continued the city's tough stance toward vacant and dangerous buildings and worked with Dover Police Chief James Hosfelt to develop the safe communities program.
"Throughout my seven years with the City of Dover, I have been a devoted employee and have always worked hard to make sure that my efforts and those of my staff are in the best interest of the city," she said. "This is my home too, and I am firmly committed to making Dover a great place to live and work."
Koenig also recommended raises for Water/Wastewater Maintenance Supervisor Ralph McDougal, Information Technology Director Andy Siegel and Financial Reporting & Accounting Manager Tracey Lisiecki.
...
Based on the salary range of a similar position in Kent County, Koenig recommended a raise of 11.77 percent to $61,000 for McDougal.
...
Within the Information Technology Department, Siegel was temporarily upgraded to interim IT director by the former city manager, Koenig said.
...
Koenig then promoted Siegel to IT director, but no adjustment was made to his salary and his two and a half years of service as interim IT director.
...
To compensate for his error, Koenig recommended that Siegel's salary be increased 7.53 percent to $82,059.
As for the Department of Finance, City Controller Donna Mitchell's office had assumed much of the duties of preparing the budget as Koenig shifted most of those duties from his office.
...
But, based on the recommendation by human resources, Koenig recommended increasing Lisiecki's salary 4.01 percent to $71,600.

Acting Dover City Manager Scott Koenig said even a nine-figure windfall from the sale of the utility wouldn't keep the city flush forever. And, even with a representative on the co-op's board of directors, Dover certainly wouldn't have the flexibility it now enjoys.
"We have the ability to control our own destiny," Koenig said.

Scott Koenig becomes permanent city manager of Dover
...
Scott Koenig has been named the new city manager of Dover.
...
Dover Interim City Manager Scott D. Koenig has won the job permanently.
City of Dover officials named Koenig as the new city manager on Friday, City Clerk Traci A. McDowell said in a press release.
...
Koenig has been employed with the city of Dover for 21 years. He has been the public services manager/director of public works. He became interim city manager in June, when former city manager Tony DePrima retired after nearly 10 years on the job.
Koenig's time as interim city manager has been busy with several presentations before Dover City Council. In September, he proposed eliminating the pay for performance evaluation form for employees and replacing it with a less cumbersome and shorter evaluation form. Per direction of council, Koenig has been revising those forms.
Koenig is also reviewing employees' use of cell phones and take-home cars in an effort to trim the budget, per direction of council's Committee on Legislation and Administration.
Koenig also tried to convince City Council to rein in future spending as the city faces long-term budget deficits, including a $5 million deficit for the 2013 fiscal year. Namely, Koenig tried to convince council to essentially reduce the city's attempt to keep pace with the significant inflation of Medicare Part B reimbursements for nonunion employees. That measure failed by a 4-4 vote Oct. 10.

Councilman David Anderson (Fourth District), a conservative budget hawk, welcomed the permanent appointment of Koenig.
"Mr. Koenig has the wisdom to guide the city through the challenges in the coming years, the will to do so, and the relationships to do it with compassion," he said. "I look forward to continuing working with him."
Koenig believed he was selected because he has a good understanding of the issues at hand, particularly with regard to the budget, he said.
"First and foremost, we all have to get our heads wrapped around the budget, from declining revenues to personnel costs to needing to invest in our infrastructure," he said. "Those are the three major things out there. We've got to get a sustainable budget in place that balances the wants and desires of council and citizens with the current needs of infrastructure and other needs of the city."
City officials have begun to prepare the 2013 fiscal year budget, which faces a $5 million shortfall, Koenig said. As such, the city is looking to trim expenditures through the possible privatization of some positions and consolidating some departments into bigger, more efficient departments.
In addition, the city is in a hiring freeze, Koenig said. Therefore, vacant positions such as the supervisors of senior city administration and central services will likely remain open.
Koenig supervises 370 potions in the labor force. But if he has his way, the size of that force will contract.
"We're trying to see if we can work smarter with fewer people," he said.
