On Friday the 13th, Acting City Manager Sheila Luckett and City Attorney Paula Flowers notified City Planner Bobby Franklin that his employment with the City of Mt. Juliet was terminated, effective immediately. Reason given: “for the good of the City.”
Why would Linda Elam want to hire a new City Manager? Looks like she’s getting to run the City through Paula and Sheila without having to worry about annoying inconveniences like the City Charter.
PS: For those who wonder why the Mayor might want to get rid of the City Planner, I recommend you read the documents related to the censure of Mayor Elam.
