New Port Richey hires new finance director

NEW PORT RICHEY — Nearly three months after the abrupt resignation of its finance director, New Port Richey has hired a new money man to watch over the city's dollars.

City Manager John Schneiger's office has announced the hiring of Douglas M. Haag, effective June 30. Haag, 58, a former assistant city manager and finance director of the city of Sunny Isles Beach, will make $77,000 a year.

Haag has more than 15 years of city finance and accounting experience, a bachelor's degree in accounting, and a master's degree in finance, according to Schneiger's office.

"New Port Richey is a great area with tremendous potential, and I'm happy to be part of it," Haag said in a city press release. "My family and I are looking forward to being involved in all aspects of this great community."

During his tenure at Sunny Isles, Haag received two consecutive Government Finance Officers Association Distinguished Budget Presentation awards, which secured $35 million in financing for infrastructure improvements and capital projects, according to Schneiger's office.

"I'm honored to have Doug as part of my management team, and I look forward to working together for many years," Schneiger stated.

Schneiger had employed an interim finance director, Jack Douglas, while searching for a permanent replacement for Rick Snyder, who resigned Feb. 27 for unspecified reasons after serving as the city's finance director since 1993.
