High Springs City Manager Resigned
The High Springs city commission made it clear they wanted their city manager out. Thursday afternoon, they got just that. Jim Drumm resigned. Less than a month after High Springs Mayor William Coughlin made a motion to fire the city manager, the process is over but many wonder if the decision was sound. Vice Mayor Eric May said the commission's decision was thought out and professional. Many residents disagreed.
"Right now, the decisions being made by the current city commission are the dismantling of intellectual capital in a city that doesn't have a huge staff," said former commission candidate Ross Ambrose.
Mayor Coughlin did issue a statement, "I am pleased the situation is amicably resolved, the city faces many challenges, it is time to move forward." To see more on this report, watch the video to your right.
