They’ve finally winnowed the field down to just two contenders after going so long without a real city manager, and now they've mucked it all up by trying to find out about their personalities.
Not only that, but the personality test they want to subject the finalists to is outrageously expensive, coming in at $1,600 for two of them.
That $1,600 could be put toward more important things than a personality test for a new city manager. Things like about a week and a half's worth of pension for a policeman they let stick around on paid leave for seven months until he reached 20 years on the job, even though he was eventually indicted on five felonies charging him with stealing more than $10,000 from the city.
Instead, the $1,600 goes to something as pointless as personality tests, which City Councilman Larry Hug suggested some might consider “malarkey.”
