City of Dodge City Names New Airport Manager

City of Dodge City

DODGE CITY, Kansas — The City of Dodge City Human Resources Office has announced that Kelli Enlow has been promoted to the position of Airport Manager effective January 1, 2020. The role was previously filled as a dual role to the Director of Public Works, currently held by Corey Keller.

According to Keller, the decision to divide the dual position was made in preparation for the approval of a jet service airline at Dodge City Regional Airport.

“We needed to be able to focus more on the new airline with a full-time person on site,” Keller said. “Our goal is to ensure that we can meet all of the marketing needs, not only for the airport but the jet service as well.”

Enlow has worked in the Public Works department as a Utilities Record Technician in the water division since December 2016. Her three years of experience with the department has allowed her to learn more than just her department division, Keller said.

“Kelli has done an excellent job overseeing all her responsibilities within the Water Division for Public Works and is a valued employee,” Keller said. “She demonstrates a positive attitude and readiness to complete any task. I feel she has the professionalism necessary to help market the airport to the next level.”  

To best prepare her for her role, Enlow has been splitting her time with her previous role while slowly working her way into the new position since accepting the position in August 2019 after being selected in the hiring process.

“With the recent runway reconstruction being finalized and the new jet service starting in February, I am excited to begin work in this position,” Enlow said. “I am looking forward to the upcoming terminal remodel and implementing my ideas to help make Dodge City Regional Airport successful.”
