Huntington was NOT chartered/incorporated for a "City Manager" type government.

The Mayor is SUPPOSED to be running the city with the advice and direction of the city council.

The women at city hall are really just clerks and are not supposed to be making decisions.

Just found this post. Interesting question and I'm surprised there are not more resposes. Seems to me that the mayor only does what he is told to do, which must mean he is NOT running the city. It's a shame that the standards are so low with that" fine establishment".

I think there are three types of city government Type A Type B and Type C, Manuela, why don't you find out which type Huntington is? If what the poster says is true, then Milstead has no business being there.

In my opinion it isn't whether he offends me or not. It is whether he has the experience and knowledge to be a City Manager.
Example: Shortfalls in the City budget in the thousands of dollars each year.

IN MY OPINION, the only knowledge he has is what the city has paid for.... any classes he has taken, the city paid for...heck, I don't have the proof on paper, just what I was told, that he and his wife enjoyed a motel and alcohol on the city (this has been many years ago, but goes toward his lack of character)

The need to have many open records requests sent to them. The city residents will have much more better understanding of their gov if they ask for many records.

Just trying to clairify, Are you saying people at City Hall in Huntington are rude or non professional? It would not surprise me any.

The city officials are our servants and we are the masters. They should treat us with respect.

Yes I am. They aren't what people think they are and it will all come out when their castle crumbles little by little. They have no respect for anybody but themselves. I've seen them belittle and be rude to innocent good citizens. And no I don't work there. So don't anybody try to figure me out. So many people know the truth, and nothing happens to them. Let's see what happens in Zavalla tomorrow nite. The beginning of the end.... is what i'm seeing with the mighty City management.

I hate they are so rude at Huntington City Hall. Perhaps they forgot the following:

Sec. 552.001. POLICY; CONSTRUCTION.

(a) Under the fundamental philosophy of the American constitutional form of representative government that adheres to the principle that government is the servant and not the master of the people, it is the policy of this state that each person is entitled, unless otherwise expressly provided by law, at all times to complete information about the affairs of government and the official acts of public officials and employees. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The people insist on remaining informed so that they may retain control over the instruments they have created. The provisions of this chapter shall be liberally construed to implement this policy.

you can call their city office, they should be able to tell you. Are you planning on attending? I would like to, but I have other obligations. If you decided to go, please, let us know what happens.

Well lets get something going on this thread today.

I would imagine being on a city council might suck. You don't get paid but you are in real danger of someone saying you violated the law. Just like they are doing in zavalla.

if the city councils would do their "job" like they are supposed to, then all the "peyton place" activities would not happen. Sadly, a lot of people today have no morals or conscience to speak of, in other words, they just don't care. Because of this they think that being a council member makes them a status symbol. Sorry people, got news for you, you are no better than anyone else!!
