City Watcher Thought #1 on Friday the 13th: Abandonment of City Manager


The Revoke Home Rule movement began earlier, but I am finding as I talk to well-informed neighbors that there is nearly if not just as much support for a referendum on abandoning the Council-Manager form of city government. Some believe the manager position should be abolished to make it clearer where the buck stops, but others think it could be a temporary measure for the sake of cleaning our municipal house.
