Video-The Hamster Wheel of the Glen Rose City Administrator Position- July 2010

21 July 2010 at 10:21:45 AM

Let's see. The city of Glen Rose council votes to hire a city administrator. One strong reason to do this is because they spent big bucks on the CPAC (Comprehensive Planning) document about how to grow the city. The plans went forward, and the interviews were scheduled and then all of a sudden, ........................ the interviews were cancelled by one city council member without a vote. The city council then decided in their next meeting to put off talking about the whole issue again until after their meeting in July.

At THIS meeting, the retreat meeting that was held on July 17, 2010, Pam Miller, mayor, brought up the discussion point as *if* the city decides to hire an administrator. Huh? The city already DID decide. They VOTED on it.  Yes, Miller has never wanted an administrator and that's been pretty clear, although why not, really, remains a mystery.

the city talked about the need for a job description.Um, if they had no job description, then what was this I was sent a couple of months back?  The job description talked about administering cpac. And how were they interviewing for a job if they had no description? Was this a fly-by-the-seat of the pants process? The upshot of it is that it appears that they're all going to wait until all the city is present and then bring it up again, with a better job description. (I'm clipping the discussion about job descriptions and posting separately, as it was also a wider discussion about all city employees).

As Bob Stricklin has said,  why have a plan for the city if you aren't going to hire a city administrator? Otherwise wasting the taxpayer money.

What say the residents of the City of Glen Rose, including businesses? You like the way this issue goes round and round without ever getting anywhere?
