City Manager David Waind says he'll end his 35-year career with the city next spring. He's been the city manager since 1997.

Waind says one of the most memorable events during his tenure was the Souris River flood in June 2011. The river damaged or destroyed more than 4,000 homes, businesses and other structures in the city and caused nearly $700 million in damage. Waind says recovery is still a big focus.

Officials hope to have a successor named by the time Waind steps down at the end of March.

Waind says he isn't sure what he'll do in retirement.
