More suggestions for city manager

By From page A6 | February 20, 2014

The Chamber of Commerce recently wrote about what characteristics the next city manager of Davis should possess. I have the following additional suggestions:

* Be fiscally responsible in your actions instead of hiring several new high-level managers and initiating expensive studies;

* Listen to the community instead of constantly talking about yourself and your previous communities that Davis does not want to mimic;

* Be accessible and do not barricade yourself so it is difficult for the public to physically visit the city manager’s office; and

* Motivate instead of destroy the morale of city staff.
