Well, I'll be...

It turns out that there is back-up for the City Manager's item on tonight's City Commission agenda. Basically, Mr. Baldwin is offering us a fine farewell, explains again why he didn't want the job in the first place and offers to stay on through the search for a new City Manager. Unfortunately, since he really didn't want to be here anyway, we had to pay for a lot more than what we got - my opinion.

And just how did we end up with what turns out to be a City Manager with one of the larger carbon footprints possible? Kyoto Protocol anyone? Care to comment Commissioner Cara Jennings? How many tons of carbon in the atmosphere does 750 hours of commuting in a single passenger automobile amount to?

Interesting discussion on the last page (Minutes from June) regarding decorum at meetings which precedes mention of the City Manager's contract.
