Council Votes on Amendment for Second Week in a Row
The Greenville City Council met on Tuesday to again evaluate the performance and contract of City Manager Steven Alexander, now the second time in two weeks.
Previously the Council had met on March 27th, and like two weeks ago, the council voted to amend Alexander’s employment agreement. It will now take five members of the Council rather than four to terminate the contract.
The same two Council members, Jeff Dailey and Dan Perkins, voted against the amendment. The voting total was the only thing that changed from March 27th as Velma Del Bosque-Hobdy added her vote to improve the measure to 5-2.
The amendment allows the Council to deliberate the appointment, employment, evaluation, reassignment, duties, discipline, or dismissal of a public officer or employee; or to hear a complaint or charge against an officer or employee.
