After just five days on the job as Blissfield’s new downtown/economic development director/Main Street manager, Tyler Dotson said he is feeling right at home in the village of Blissfield. Dotson is Blissfield’s first economic development director, filling a new role that expanded the job description of the downtown development director/Main Street manager. Village officials expanded the position after the departure of the previous director and manager last August. Dotson said he is quickly learning the lay of the land and meeting people within the community. He said building relationships is one of the primary building blocks in successful economic development.
