CALLAWAY, Fla. - Last week, Callaway City Manager Michael Fuller was asked to resign. This week, the commission is working on a game plan to fill the position.
"I think it was good that the commission agree on one, paying our city manager benefits. That was very important to me. And two is how we're going to proceed on with hiring our new manager," said Mayor of Callaway Bob Pelletier.
Fuller has accepted a position at the Department of Environmental Protection. His last day will be February 8th, but the mayor says the commission is in no rush to fill the position.
"We want to take our time, and I think the consensus of the board is to go outside of the city, look at who is available out there, and kind of get the citizens involved in the process. And having a really good vetting procedure to make sure that, as we move forward, we're hiring the person that is good for our city, citizens, and of course the commission," said Mayor Pelletier.
Mayor Pelletier wants to fill the position with someone who has a background in city management and is encouraging the community to get involved with the process.
"We as a commission do everything in public, and we, of course, will have a public meeting and advertise to come meet and greet our city manager. Pay attention to the advertising. Pay attention to the live stream. We live stream all of our meetings, which is good for our citizens. A lot of citizens out there are not aware of that," said the mayor.
The commission holds meetings at 6pm every fourth Tuesday of each month at the Callaway Arts and Conference Center. All meetings are streamed live on the city website. Those who are unable to watch the live stream can go back to the archive and listen to any meeting the commission has had in the past. For more information you visit http://www.cityofcallaway.com/.
