Tense city commission approves resolution aimed to set role boundaries; Mayor says ‘it’s a sham’
Apparently, there has been some confusion in city hall as to who’s in charge. Vice Mayor Sellers and Commissioner Floyd co-sponsored a resolution to re-affirm the city charter which spells out that members of the city commission have no authority outside of city commission meetings to direct the operations of the city.
The Mt. Juliet News reports that according to Vice Mayor Sellers, “he has had multiple conversations with city employees and members of the city management teams about the problem.”
Commissioner Hagerty is quoted as saying he’s “absolutely had complaints about the mayor.”
But, according to Mayor Elam, the resolution was a sham, and she abstained from the vote which passed 4-0-1.
