The Assistant to the City Manager and the Secretary to the City Manager are NOT new positions. Matt Horn had people in those positions working in his office.
We now have a City Manager, Assistant City Manager, Assistant to the City Manager and the Secretary to the City Manager. Wow seems a little top heavy to me when all the money that they had in savings is gone or nearly gone with the previous City Manager. I see some substantial struggles in the future for the City of Geneva. Sad that there wasn't more oversight.
Adam Blowers had been performing duties NOT related to his Comptroller job for years under Horn. When it came time to hire a new city manager, it was decided that going forward, Blowers would be compensated for those additional duties he had been performing for free. So he was given an additional title and a raise.
wonder why the 'blogger' has not spoke out about the money being spent?
Because I've been covering half a dozen other stories of mismanagement and misconduct, in my free time, for no pay.
The fact that city hall costs went up again
this year, like they do every year, isn't news.
Fortunately, city officials announced that the time frame of the budget process this year will be expanded, with more opportunities for public input.
Hopefully, this change will give some of the posters on this forum an opportunity to become more involved in the budget process so that they can have more informed opinions.
I have read your blog and I'm all for accountability, but it has to be truthful. I know for a fact that some info you've put in there, simply isn't true.
Then give me examples. Send me a message with evidence that whatever I'm saying is not true. I have posted corrections on the blog in the past when I've found out that I provided inaccurate information, and I will continue to do so.
Fair enough, I'll be getting back to you.
