On Tuesday evening during the delivery of his bi-monthly City Manager’s Report, Interim City Manager Wendle Medford delivered an informative public announcement about an upcoming meeting before providing the council with several project updates.
Starting off with a public announcement Interim City Manager Medford said “On May 1st we’re going to schedule a council meeting to start at 5:30 pm. We have a lot in our pipeline, so we’re going to pick up the pace a little before we get to the budget, and try to address some of the outstanding issues.”
Medford said “Moving on to construction projects, we’ve got a Redbud update. So sub-contractors are testing the new gas line that they relocated. The tentative plans are to be completed by April of 2018, so they are progressing quickly there.”
Listen in below as Interim City Manager Medford provides an update on the Amy Street Water Tower project, and announces a Union Pacific Railroad presentation that has been scheduled to provide residents with information on track repairs currently underway in Forney.
It has been confirmed that several council members (Myers, Powers & Penn) are again insisting on interviewing a long list of city manager candidates, whose applications have been supplied them by Strategic Government Resources (SGR).
Consistently presenting a professional, non-political demeanor; the citizens of Forney need to ask the elected members of their council exactly why they refuse to consider Wendle Medford for the City Manager position.
Check out the body language of Council Member’s Powers and Myers, as Medford delivers his City Manager’s Report. It doesn’t take a master's degree in municipality management to determine why these two council members don’t want a professional city manager at the helm of Forney City Hall.
