TOWN MANAGER PAY GRADE: XI (EXEMPT)

When reading the Job description Stacy Tebo prepared, you will note that she included the general job description listed under “Town Manager” in the Charter, but unfortunately never noted what she was responsible for in other parts of the charter such as 6.07 (b) Reduction of appropriations: If at any time during the fiscal year, it appears to the Town Manager that revenues appropriated will be insufficient, he or she shall report to the Council without delay indicating the estimated amount of the deficit. The Town Manager shall suggest remedial action to be taken and recommend to the Town Council such other steps needed to reduce the deficit.  The Town Council shall take further action to prevent or minimize a deficit and for that purpose may, by motion, reduce one (1) or more appropriations.   No, Ms. Tebo lists what she should do but has not done what she should.
