Sullivan tax increase 8.9%; cuts to outside agencies, vacant positions
At the end of the meeting, Benson said, “I’ve been given 16 different opinions” about the process of replacing the county manager. He said that the latest information he had was that the county manager’s “employment agreement” with the county ends at the end of this month and, after that, Fanslau would become a per diem employee with the county, and then the legislature can do as it pleases regarding the county manager position.
He said at the end of the public meeting, “Five legislators were on board with this, but after being given all the different advice, I don’t know if we should go through with it as a resolution; we’ve been told we don’t have to. But we would like to make a statement and make sure it’s on the record that we would like to make a change in the county manager’s office.”
