I look forward to communication from the city as to when the interim city manager pick will again be considered by council, as it would be helpful to residents who are concerned about why the new city manager was fired by three councilmembers, incurring a $300K cost to taxpayers.
If the firing was a legitimate act by the Gang of Three, how do they explain that the other two voted against it, why would they, you would expect the vote to fire would be 5-0 if there was a good cause.
Time will tell, this is just the beginning.
