This is just a contract person. The city is wasting a ton of money because no qualified person wants to work for this board.

The city is paying over $3000 per WEEK for this. Newsflash: city employees have not had a pay increase in 4 years. How do they scrape up $3000 per week to pay for this nonsense? Let's treat our employees like crap and then hire a contract person to lead the city at $3000 per week....oh wait the City is probably still paying off the contract for the ex city administrator too...

It's $3100 per week PLUS expenses, a vehicle, and LODGING. No mention of how much was spend finding the interim CA or how much money was blown on the last two internal CA recruitment attempts. No mention of how much the new third party search for a permanent CA will cost. As a bonus, there's a 45 day transitional period where the City will be paying both the interim and perm CA salaries.

City employees have not had a pay increase in four years, although a study (that the city paid for) that was conducted suggested giving pay increases for all those years, but the city chose to ignore the study. Now the city wants to start making all the employees pay more for their healthcare. A new study was conducted (that the city paid for) which said the employees are rich in benefits, but are underpaid. It seems the city only hears "rich in benefits" but chooses to ignore "underpaid".

**Except for the finance director and HR director who give themselves a promotion and a fat raise.**

Now the city is paying $3100 per week, plus expenses, a vehicle, and lodging, to an interim City Administrator?

Bottom line city employees are still underpaid and the Board of Aldermen keep approving nonsense like interim CA's, and paying to bring a technical school to town at taxpayer cost. As long as the employees are underpaid, how can they be too rich in benefits?

Idiots run the city.
