MJ city manager decides to stay
“City Manager Randy Robertson said Tuesday he’ll stay as city manager another six months, but under the old contract because he at this time could not commit to 24 months.”
In the story, Robertson discloses that he had received an e-mail from former city planner, Bobby Franklin, who advised him to stay. “If those suing the city think I should stay, then I should.”

Ordinance regulating where city manager/chief live passes on first reading
[five miles or 20 minutes? Both? Or just the city manager?]

Editorial teaser:
Does it really matter where city leaders live?

[the editorial asks the interesting question, “Why do commissioners want to give future police chiefs the five mile leeway, but not future city managers? A police chief will be called on duty in emergencies and spur of the moment much more than a city manager.”
