Lora Petro Answers Question 39 Straightforward Answer Sought Re CAO

Question 39:
Yes, Mr. Phipps should stay on until his contract expires. This is not necessarily to teach Mr. Miceli, but to familiarize him with our Town. This should be able to be completed within the 30 day period. With all of the turnover our Town has seen, is it not fair to allow Mr. Miceli a chance to acclimate to our Town, how we are in fact implementing the 41 recommendations? Although these 41 recommendations were found under our current CAO, I do not believe the blame rests solely on his shoulders. It has taken us years to get this far, and will take a solid foundation to move us forward.

So my answer is this…

YES to stay on until contract expires

NO to a stay after
