To All COLA LO Members,
Lets take another look at what the candidates have told us and more importantly what the voters have told the candidates!
The council elect now seems to be telling us that the top priority is to hire a new city manager. The city manager has the hire/fire authority according to the city charter, under the direction of the council
So voters can expect some changes in the overall staffing levels at the city over time and a redirection of focus. Its likely the city will have more limited efforts in terms of areas its involved in that are outside of core services within the community. That likely means less meetings, less paperwork and more face to face discussions with residents.
It's hard to say but these savings may be used to finance other priorities within the city. Only time will tell but this may redirect efforts and improve livability within the community.
