Audio-What about the Glen Rose City Administrator Job (March 22 2010)?

30 March 2010 at 1:55:29 PM

I was out of pocket last week so listening now to the audio from the City of Glen Rose meeting from last week. Pam Miller, who, at least it appears to me, has never been a fan of having a city administrator, brought up that there was never a vote about using Larry Shaw et al to vet the resumes from potential candidates. (It's a little hard to hear in parts due to the way the city's recordings depend on people speaking into the microphones and not from the audience).

Rough transcript-if you want the exact wording, listen to this.. The Glen Rose Reporter newspaper, official Glen Rose newspaper, also has an article about this.

First, she wanted to defer any decision about getting a city administrator until a new council is elected. Bob Stricklin disagreed and said they have worked on this thing, always predicated on a plan that needed a city administrator to oversee. CAn't wait every year for 3-4 months to do business of the city, people come on and off city council all the time. ... You're assuming (the number of new city council people). Barbara Mitchell-not anything wrong with putting this group together now. Larry Shaw-two of the group (vetting) the resumes are former city administrators. People would not even be interviewed until after the new council together. Larry Shaw-I was asked to do this, I didn't come forward. Pam Miller-I appreciate that, but the council didn't ... I want to include Barbara and Ronald and John Parker (former mayor). We need to have someone who lives in the city to do this. Stricklin-starting to get a large committee-this was only to be a screening process-we would see all the applicants resumes-they were going to rate them as a committee, which ones would be the best fit fo the city.  You get too many people on a board and it gets to be nonfunctional. Larry Shaw-screened candidates, interviewed 7 or 8, presented list of 3. If all you want us to do is rate the candidates we can certainly do that. .. we know a lot of the candidates.Stricklin made motion to make a panel including Barbara Mitchell.

On Item 8, which was about approving a schedule to interview candidates, Miller said again that she wanted to wait until after the new city council members were on board to vote on it. Chris Bryant- if what we're looking at is whether a new city council agrees with the idea of having a city adminstrator, what are we looking at? Larry Shaw-hire and fire at will. I'm not going to recommend that the final interview take place until after the new council in place. Miller then brings up the issue of the taxes ,and whether if taxes are down, can hire a city administrator. Stricklin-will probably be in July at some time and at any time we can stop or go forward but I don't see waiting months to start this process. Miller-I think we need to look at the qualifications of what we're looking for. Ronald and Peggy are very good, giving current employees an opportunity. Stricklin-our employees are doing a good job. Terry-I feel like we're ready for an administrator, looking for the right one, we don't have to be in a hurry but need the right one. Mitchell-getting the process in motion for when we are ready, like Larry said, we don't have to be in a big hurry. Miller-Yes, .. finances, right now things are going very well... I need to know what this position will do without putting someone out of a job. Shaw-you don't want to hire somebody and then fire them right off. Terry-they are going to have experience we don't have

Sounds like the Mayor is stalling. Why? Get on with it. Like many of the others said, this is just the beginning of the selection process.
