In response to the city manager getting a pay raise, the mayor and Auburn City Council have no choice but to say he’s doing a good job because they hired him! If they said he wasn’t doing an adequate job they would look foolish to have placed him in that role, even though he has zero qualifications to fill the position other than being a “yes man” to the mayor and the city council.
Don’t be surprised in the near future if the city manager returns the favor to the mayor and the city council with a pay raise recommendation in his budget proposal. Taxes and fees are out of control!
It’s time city hall did something for the taxpayers in the city of Auburn.
