If you follow the council meetings very closely, unfortunately, it does not appear that Mayor Grenz has his demeanor, actions, ideas, or responses questioned or challenged by any of the City Council. That is the scarey part to me.
A Mayor and City Council should strive to hire competent and motivated people to fill city positions. Along those lines, the department heads should be hired according to their qualifications and then they should be allowed to run their departments. If there is a question or problem, work with the department head. Too many bosses and a confused chain of command is detrimental to any business or organization. It creates a difficult working environment for employees.
Good employees should be encouraged, not forced out and discouraged. This is creating a "sue to get mine" or "sue to get even with" atmosphere that is only harmful to everyone, especially the taxpayer holding the bag, so to speak.
I don't mean that there haven't been some problems that needed fixing but if you need cracks in your china repaired, do you send in the bull to fix them?
