Mayor, council office space debated

April 22, 2014

A new office space in City Hall for use by the mayor and City Council members spurred a lively discussion between a few members of council.
Following Mayor Bob Howard's activity report, he stated "the mayor and council have established an office" at City Hall which includes an extension in the city's phone system and voicemail.
Councilman Ned Jacob stated council had no part in this project.
"I don't need an office at City Hall. All my business is conducted at home," Jacob said. "I don't need an extension down here. I don't know why we need an office down here for a councilperson or the mayor. I think we're setting up a precedent here which we shouldn't be doing."
Councilwoman Sally Geyer said she believes it is more appropriate to say the office was set up by the mayor and City Manager Dave Greene. This was the first time Geyer has heard of the office.
