No replacement in line for City Manager

November 16, 2003

Albany - City commissioners haven't decided who will run Albany when City Manager Janice Allen Jackson leaves. Tuesday, commissioners accepted Jackson's resignation without discussion.

She's leaving December 31st, but there is currently no assistant city manager. Jackson stated in her resignation letter that she plans to interview applicants for the position later this month.

Commissioners held an executive session Tuesday, but they haven't finalized a process to hire a new city manager. "We're going to put out a search committee to find a new city manager," said Tommy Postell, Commissioner. "At this point we haven't finalized any particular item, until we can come to grips with how we are going to do it."

Earlier this year, commissioners were angered when Jackson didn't hire an assistant city manager. Instead, she promoted a current employee to a position she called assistant to the city manager.
