And the Director of Public Works has no Sewer and Water experience.

This is getting better than Netflix.


None of these are State-mandated positions, and all but PW are open. Leave them open or better yet rescind them, Supervisors.

Do your job for once, and save your taxpayers some money.

Now what ? The board will be having a special meeting to figure out what to do next. Hopefully they will admit to themselves that they really don't want a county manager, or at least admit that some of them have no intention to let a County manager manage. There are a few supervisors who act like spoiled brats who want to control everything.

When Mitch Rowe quit, the board did not name an interim. When James Smith resigned, they didn't either.

The Department Heads ran their Departments and the Chair of the BOS did the necessary contract signing, etc. on behalf of the County.

That worked well and didn't cost the county any more money.

That must have been discussed in the Executive Session that was closed to the public. Nothing was discussed at the open part of meeting, and the board did not report any action or take any votes when the executive session adjourned.

No, but they will probably waive that for ingestion.

Waive for ingestion? Does that mean they will eat him up?

Loc: Right here.
why would the Seneca BOS hire back someone that quit the job or am I missing something? I meant Mitch Rowe from the earlier comments. Don't know the person but from the comments it looks like he was manager and quit.

Just that the BOS may realize that they goofed and aren't going to be too happy with what comes next.
