Oneonta City Manager Michael Long to retire

Standing with Common Council may have been in jeopardy

-- —

Michael H. Long, Oneonta's first city manager, will retire this spring or summer, Mayor Dick Miller said today.

The statement came after inquiries by The Daily Star into indications from a source at city hall that Long's standing with some Common Council members was in doubt and that his job was in jeopardy. Miller said neither he nor Long would have further comment until Tuesday's regular Common Council meeting.

Miller said he and Long are discussing details of his retirement plans, including a continuing consulting relationship with the city related to planning and grant seeking.

Long, who earns a $115,000 salary, was hired by the city Oct. 1, 2012. The position was created in a revision of the city charter approved by voters.
