The dispute between commissioners Jane Mealy and Steve Settle was channeled into a more constructive discussion of the limits of commissioners’ administrative meddling.
The “fragmented” city commission Jane Mealy referred to last week is becoming more so as a fellow-commissioner calls out Mealy through a letter to the mayor.
Mealy criticized fellow commissioner Steve Settle by name and alluded to Ron Vath in a wide-ranging indictment of micromanagement. Her two colleagues disagree, but welcome a future meeting on the matter.
A fractured city commission decided against head-hunters or consultants in the search for a new city manager. Commissioners will do all the work.
