Glen Rose Needs a New Mayor, But Until That Happens...

21 July 2010 at 9:04:08 PM

First of all, I did not attend the city council's 'retreat' this weekend. I've only heard a few bits and pieces but the picture is depressingly clear. The mayor's latest tactic for stalling the hiring of an administrator now hinges on her need for new job descriptions first, before a decision can be made. Well, hello! A city administrator can hone these descriptions and assist the council in moving forward, but the mayor clearly does not want that.

She wails about the money for a city administrator, but is not concerned about lunch at Hooters or the air conditioning bill at the old skating rink as workers proceed to install a new ceiling ( described as "pretty tacky") with the AC turned down to a cool 60 degress, even though the roof shows sky blue in a few places. Hello. Anybody home, council?

While the city's and the 4B money is going down the drain, no architect has been hired for Oakdale. There's no contractor or designer making intelligent decisions for Oakdale and the city continues to table every important decision that needs to be made.

Council: where are you? The mayor doesn't even have a vote, but you are like putty in her hands. Get a grip. Move this forward, regardless of what the mayor wants. You can do this.

I think the mayor has gone and put the cart before the horse.  Glen Rose does need an administrator.  Like everyone has been saying, the administrator could have fixed all these problems instead of what has already taken place.  And as for job descriptions, shouldn't they already have them.  Currently from what I see is employees doing nothing.  Just yesterday I saw 2 teenagers driving a city truck down by the City Barn and they pulled in the gas station to say hi to a friend that was getting gas.  Are OUR tax dollars paying for them to waste gas in city vehicles just like the current city employees.  Something has got to been done.  My husband yesterday asked me a question, "Do I need to run for city council?"  I said no, run for MAYOR,   That way Pam won't get as many votes to get re- elected.  It is a thought.  So Monday he'll b at the council meeting, and I will be there a little later, cause I have to work.

Good for you both! :)With you about the job descriptions, in fact, as soon as I get some more of the video uploaded, I'm going to post what they said about the job descriptions. You remember I HAVE the job description for city administrator from the city secretary!

Yes I do, and now at this point in time I hope it changes cause it sounds almost like what our current city supervisor does.  To me it's a little scary
