Can't hire people without desks? Seriously?! Ever hear of laptops? There's plenty of space where they can work at City Hall - or other City facilities while awaiting the remodel. I swear, this City Manager is having another temper tantrum because the Mayor and Keith are asking for more transparency and fiscal accountability. I'd say this Manager pretty much lost all credibility when he pushed though the $48,000 "new" logo - which is the same as the old logo. Wasteful and dumb.

Present City Manager is an empire builder. He always wants to hire more staff to boss around. Spending money like crazy. Present council is hopeless and has no backbone. We need a new council and a new City Manager and soon.
