It gives all control to the 39,652.38 City Manager throughout this Council's and any future 110.00 Council's terms. 35.141.45 Fortunately a group of concerned residents spoke out 56,692.87 50,510.09 against this contract before it could be ratified during 18,313.59 the July 18th 2013 Norwalk City Council meeting. The 62,142.12 Council agreed to table the resolution until a commit- 55.00 tee can review the contract and recommend the terms. 24,220.39 In my opinion the City Managers' original contract 36,769.66 was reasonable. "Should the City terminate the employ- 1.650.00 ment of the City Manager without cause, she will re- 21,011.10 ceive compensation for six (6) months severance pay and 13,025.00 benefits." No City Manager should receive a Golden -3,765,00 Parachute of epic and lottery proportions or need a guar- 74,235.00 anteed employment shield from future City Council's 44,941.94 authorities. 43,317.35 Fellow voters and taxpayers, our City Government 3,272.00 2.363.00 should not repeatedly and relentlessly conduct City 304.50 business by hiding details and discussions in a closed 946.86 session and keeping the public in the dark. I ask you to 45.845.97 get informed and involved now. Start with this topic of 65,322.11 the City Manager's contract. Get yourselves to the Coun- 6.637.54 cil meetings. Contact your Councilmembers. Plug in to 6,492.30 the upcoming City Election. Know your candidates. And 16,221.00 vote on November 5th. 383.36 42,048.11 *Biggest Cities: Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, 2,328.OO Sioux City, Waterloo, Council Bluffs, Ames, Dubuque, 2,328.00 West Des Moines and Ankeny. 14,223.42 41,989.40 48,306.47 Erika Isle3 3086 Soutl Orilla Rd, Norwalk GOVERNMENT IN ACTION Concluded from p. 1 opment, 407 and 508 Braeburn Dr., new Single Family Residence (SFR), $225,000 each; Hubbell Homes, LC, 1904 Dorchester SL, New SFR, $357,391; Savannah Homes Inc., 312 Elm Ave., New SFR, $193,900; Show- case Homes Ltd., 550 Legacy Ct. #9 and #10, New SFR, $200,000 each.
