Why Did He Resign

Columbia, TN

#1 Mar 1, 2013
How much if any compensation was the city manager paid for his trouble?

Was he under contract was that contract bought out by the city anyone know?

How many if any department managers have been put under contract as to cost the city taxpayers if any decide to leave or ask to leave?

Did the local news contact the city manager as to get his side of the story?

How much could a acting city manager or out going Mayor, cover up before a new city manager is hired?
What kind of mess could be discovered only if it was not election time and city council members were not so busy trying to get elected again?

I know I am not telling most people that Bob is without a doubt one of the most stupid people that has ever written anything on any topic board.

The past city manager worked only on a month to month basis and did not have a yearly contract that had to be bought out. He was paid nothing after he resigned. Many say it had to do with the way he was treating some of the employees and how he spoke to them and about Lewisburg and once the council was told of this he knew his days were numbered. He probably resigned before the council could fire him and did not want that on his record.

Speaking of Stupid! Would it take really stupid people to believe that an educated man from out of town would pull up and take a city manager job, far from his home without a contract or guarantee that if the job did not workout he would get nothing?
If he did take that job without a contract or agreement he must be stupider than me!

Treating the employees at city hall? They should been able to that care of themselve, why not tell the facts!
What about the poor dogs at the animal shelter!
What really happened so if what you said was so another Town won't make the same mistakes Lewisburg Does?

Maybe he was just wanted the city workers to get off their lazy asses and do the job they were being paid for.Perhaps he ruffled a few feathers.

Don't know just asking?

Was he told to take a walk, before he was found like the preacher floating in the creek?
Who knows what when any town operated with cover up, threats, and made up public official’s own self-serving rules?

Well who knows but he sure left town really quick, who would ever know, what was said or happened with local city / county government operated like it is?
Sure would not think any educated person would take any city manager job that for from their family and home without verbal written contract / agreement or their expenses covered if that job did not work out?

I might understand that if he was a local, just wanting to help the city, not having to move, but who would take a job like that 24-7, that far away from family and friends maybe without a contract, but some kind of written or verbal agreement between who?

Wonder how they might book extra pay or moving expences as sudden miscellanies expense, or Industrial recurtment travel expence?

If I was a city council person, I would be looking!

Could moving expences be called Supplemental pay like were the schools booking extra pay for the coaches extra pay?

There is absolutely no way that anyone is getting any extra pay like the coaches got at the high school. Minor put a stop to that real quick when he found out about all the employees that were given a raises without the councils knowledge last year and the city manager and former treasurer decided it was time for them to take a walk. Now is every city employee earning there pay, I would probably say no but I don't believe anyone is getting anything that has not already been approved by the council.

Were those raises approved and let stand even after the city council said no raises? Were the others given their raises, to shut their mouths?
Did the they walk before they had to talk and might have told on the rest that the City Council and Mayor though was best, to keep them all from going to jail?

Did all the employees that were give a raise get to keep that raise and the others who were not get their raise?
Counld it be like the street light deal did the city got at least part of it's money back, if not all of it, but who knows? For did any really look to see, if it was all of it's money or if any other customers were over charged?
Did the Mayor and City Council just except what they were given and told by the very ones who overcharge them, what they were overcharged?
How many crooks could rob a bank over 6 or 7 years, yet go back to the bank and say we got 2 hundred thousand dollars, yet lets say we owe the bank 1 hundred thousand dollars, it was a hundred thousand dollar mistake?
Would the bank or police then believe anything those said?

Don't believe and knowing by not looking?
Just waiting for someone to complain or show them, isn't that how, those who got the raises and the electric company over charging the city for street lights got done?
Who went to jail if for doing wrong? Who got investigated?

Can the average person shop lift and they are arrested, investigated and trial?
But can any public officials, just say it was a mistake and no investigation, no public trial or jail time?

Who would believe anything some Lewisburg / or Marshall County public officials would say after reading what they have allow to take place on their watch?
From street lights over charges / to football coaches being over paid?

Was it the city workers or any city department managers? That may have not wanted him nosey around in their gravy train?
Why would any educated person take that kind of job that far from their home without a contract, written or verbal agreement to compensate him for his move and trouble if that job did not work out?

Was it like the County coaches extra pay just booked it different or even took it out of travel expenses from the industrial board account?

Could he still be on the payroll every two weeks?

Does anybody ever watch and listen to the minutes of the monthly council meetings ? Check out the last one before the city manager left. He was basically asked to do things by council members that were...dare I say "illegal". The city manager REFUSED to play their game and I am betting that that is why he left. That same council person said that ..this is the way we have always done it(speaking of finances) and this is the way we will continue to do it and I (that council person)don't care what anyone says !... MAYBE, this is why Lewisburg has lost 3 good City Managers. MAYBE this is why Lewisburg has the troubles that it does. Seems like we have had the SAME councilmen in office for a while, not to mention other offices that aren't playing by their own WRITTEN rule books! I wouldn't be too quick to condemn the City managers people...you might want to open your eyes and see what's been on your back porch for some time now.

Are you stupid or just a hater of lewisburg. The two city manager who resigned did so before they were about to be fired. One for giving out nearly $100,000 in unapproved raises and the other for badmouthing city employees and the city in general. Both thought that they were there own boss. Thought they could do anything that they wanted to do. D.O. just got bad advise from another employee.

Are you talking about Robin Minor? The fat middle school teacher who use to scratch his balls and pick his nose in front of his poor students...gross? Is he really a councilman? Wow, I feel sorry for Lewisburg. How could he beat anybody in an election? Did anyone run against him? I bet he thinks he is something else. He thought he was a big shot bossing middle school kids around, I can't imagine him in a position were he thinks he has power. The school system never even put him in power of anything. I'm sorry Lewisburg, that is horrible. If this is not the same Minor... I'm sorry.

I know Robin and yes he is a good guy. I would of voted for him too if he was in my section. You must be a real creep to remember 2 things that folks do on a daily basis. Ever rub your nose? Most likely that is what you saw and your little immature brain exaggerated a bit so you would have something negative to say about a person of authority.

Yea, I too probably scratched once or twice in front of people, those chiggers will drive you crazy in this area. If that is all you have to bitch about you are a pretty sad individual. I bet he got on you more than once. What your pea brain saw as "bossing" was just Robin doing his job. We need more folks like Robin who care.

I agree 100% flyboy. He is a really nice guy and he probably cares. He's just not very bright. You and I both know that.
