I was mildly amused by a fact in the latest story in the ongoing city manager search saga. In fact, it was the last line in the story.
Slavin was selected from 14 people or companies that submitted proposals for a national search. Council members Jeff Longwell, Feary and Schlapp interviewed three of them before picking Slavin.
So let me get this straight: The city interviews three consultants to find someone to replace the only guy it interviewed for the manager’s job the first time around. You know, the guy who then backed out of the job at the last minute.
Like I said, amusing.
