Heard that back before the last election there was a vote on the council to dismiss the current city manager, but it ended in a 2 vs 2 vote. That gave the mayor the deciding vote and she elected to vote to retain her. With all the lies, all the personnel problems, all the violations of protocol, the question of why the mayor voted against the best intersts of the city and its citizens is very appropriate. I'd like to see a response posted on here explaining her actions. Even though one of the votes to retain her back then is now gone, it seems pretty clear that the mayor puts other issues before the well-being of the city and its citizens. Time for a change there, too, it seems.

Oops, posted too soon. I meant to add that even though I had supported the mayor in the past, she has now lost my support and I'll do all in my circl of influence to see that she doesn't serve another term. When you have a destructive personality as the CM in a small town like this, it hurts to see our mayor put personal relationships ahead of the good of the community. As far as I'm concerned she's toast in the next election, as well as any councilman (are you listening Sammy) that supports her. She's caused nothing but trouble dating all the way back to provoking the outburst against her by Bobby Moore right after she took office. In retrospect, I'm convinced that although he handled it badly, Bobby had been pushed beyond his ability to cope simply because she's so lacking in management skills and knows nothing about the proper way to deal with people. There was no reason for this other than her ineptitude. She was a mistake from the start, but how long do you let it go before you stand up and say I made a mistake and get rid of her?

It would seem apparent to most that the main reason one of the former councilmen lost his seat was his mindless support for the CM even when she was demonstrably wrong. So, are you saying our mayor is equally stupid in her defense of the CM? I've heard rumors that the mayor is reverting to her old style she had when she and the two that were removed a couple years ago were big buddies. Maybe it's time for a change in the mayor position. City Hall is in a state of total disaray and it's all due to the CM and her controlling, paranoid, arrogant personality. Time for her and the rest of her defenders to go in the next election. If you don't know who those two are, it's the dentist and the mayor.

The city manager in our town has caused more trouble, lied to more people, and has been more dishonest than anyone in public office today in the region. She is destructive and needs to be fired immediately. I will not support any leader who does not move to fire her.

The new police chief seems like a good and honorable guy, I hope she does not run him off. The officers like him and he is taking a mess and putting the department back together again. I would hope the mayor is reading this.

We'd all like to think the mayor has the best interests of the town at heart, but it seems she'd rather protect an old friend than do what's best for the city. She's been there too long. Time for her to go, too. I just don't understand it, you take one person that's caused so much discord, caused so many good people to leave, and you still go all out to protect her? Doesn't make sense to me.

This is good to hear; I havenít heard anything one way or the other about the new Chief. And you can be sure the Mayor & CM knows everything that is posted on here- they need to be aware of the mole in the dept. People need to remember that if someone tries to be everybodys friend then can they really be a friend to anyone????
I hope the CM can keep her mouth shut and let him do his job. I think it is past time for her and the Mayor to go; I voted for the Mayor and it didnít take me long to realize what a mistake I had made. She has a mean spirt about her and talks neg. about everyone she knows. Oh well I guess you live and learn

The CM will do everything in her power to intimidate and control the chief, you can bet on that. And she has a mole in the police dept as you stated so she'll know every little thing the chief does. In fact, the mole was the temporary chief before the chief was hired. Word is that his car has even been seen at her house late at night. Man, that guy has a strong stomach! But he's also a cheap punk trying to score points with the CM. So, chief, a word of caution: Be wise and know who your friends are and those that aren't.

I think he would be safe not to trust no one, and yes the one mentioned above would be the very last one he should trust.I don't think he knows who he is or what he wants to be. I think he is a big fake and will do ANYTHING to get what he wants and the CM loves it!

I'm sure the mayor and one councilman would prefer this issue just go away, but it's not. And if they fail to take action, the cost will be higher than they apparently think it'll be. Time to throw out all who support a third rate city manager who's not only incompetent, but also arrogant, lies to everyone, and thinks we're all a bunch of hicks unworthy of her. Can't wait until the next election. You would have thought that Eubanks fate would have told them something but they seem to think this issue will go away. Wrong!

I was on here to see if there was anything about the city manager and I found this thread. That woman is disgusting and so trashy that it's embarrassing to know that she represents our city. How in the world did that ever happen? If the mayor and council can't see the problem, then maybe it's time to change the mayor and council. I had heard that one of the coucilmen really jumped on anyone who said anything about her but he is gone now. Seems that didn't work out too well for him. If everyone had to deal with her just once a year the outcry would be so loud and so persistent that she would never have lasted this long. Time for a change, and real soon.

Rumor has it that the CM is up to her old tricks. I talked to a police officer for Euharlee and he said the new chief of police is really frustrated and me already be on the way out. OMG, will the mayor deal with the real problem.

No she won't. She's overlooked all the bad things so far so why should she start now? We just need to replace her with someone who cares more for the city than for an old buddy. There's absolutely no question that the CM is out of control, but our elected leaders do nothing. Time for some big changes. The CM has already taken down most of city hall, she will take down the council too unless we see some action soon.

Good luck with trying to get rid of the CM. The mayor and council seem incapable of taking action even though most of them realize she was a bad mistake. The only recourse is to get rid of the mayor and the councilman who still support her. But the mayor should be the main target for replacement. She's failed us miserably in being too weak to do what has to be done.

The mayor failed a few years ago when she picked this loser. its pretty clear she didn't know the cm that well but went to bat for her anyway. And now we have her mistake. Both of them need to leave and real soon. Let us begin fixing our little city.

I agree; I love our city but she is not going to stop until she has it ran so far in the ground it will take years to get it back up. She has no ties to the city except her big fat pay check; she wants things her way and will not listen to the people that live in the city and care about it. It seems like it had come so far and I'm sure Ms. Frankie had so many more ideas (may God rest her soul) and this person comes in and our city is a mess. I do not see one thing she has done for the good of our city. She wants to sit back and be like a queen or a ruler and dictates every move that is made and then talk about what a backwoods place Euharlee is and laugh at the employees for doing what she says. They do so because they need to keep a job and if you go up against her you will you can bet it will not take long until you are gone. Well I have a news flash for her and the Mayor they both need to take a class on Etiquette. And we the citizen of Euharlee need to get out and go to council meetings and vote and make our voice heard. And to TB you are fitting in with her very well;and that my friend is so very sad.

Has the CM managed to run the Municipal Court Clerk off? I noticed a new name on the home page. Also kind of funny reading the City Manager's responsibilities. I have listed a few examples. 1. Provides leadership and direction in the development of short and long range plans, gathers, interprets and prepares data for studies, reports and recommendations for decision making purpose. 2. Provide professional advice to the Mayor, City Council and dept. heads.
3. Develops strategies for growth and economic development of the City.
To read more go to the city of Euharlee's web site.
I think most would agree this lady has shown very little professionalism and not much growth going on.
And I hope what "voter also" posted about the Police Chief is not true maybe he can hang in until the next election.
glad to hear it

I am relieved to see so many people talking about the root problem. Yes, the CM needs to go, but so does the elected ones that put AND keep the CM there. It surprised me that the mayor was re-elected the last time since she has always supported the CM. I was glad the last election put out one for supporting the CM, but I am afraid we also put one back up there that supports her.
