Here we go again — every time we have to hire another person for the city, we have to hire someone to hire someone. We have a mayor, eight Common Council members and a personnel director. I would think they would be quite capable to interview someone. So why pay someone $175 an hour for 60-70 hours, about $12,500, to do something our own people can do? OK, so it’s going to happen anyway. Now if the person will be handling things when Mr. Long retires, let her have the job. $115,000 would be enough to hire about three people for parks and streets.
