Here’s The Scoop…Small Fish…Pity-ful Pool….Stifling Competition…

SMALL FISH IN THE POND?….

Readers will recall at the previous post about a Sentinel Public Record request made to the town for travel expenses from 1/07  to the present for Commissioners…

The Vice Mayor…got all hot under the collar and puffed out his chest that there was a question asked about his that was wrong…and he was going in to the Sentinel…and set them straight…HMMM…chalk up another “scene”….

Well….well…well…looks like it was a 2 county “clean sweep” to do a front page story..by Jennifer Gollan….and not aimed at him….he was just a small fish..(this time)…

Sentinel 1/11/09…

ABOUT THAT COMMUNITY POOL…

Just off the presses…something my building manager in SRC has been warning about for months…the new required pool drains…chalk up the $$$$…and in older pools…even more $$$$$ will be required…that with the expected ADA requirements make the Mc-pool …sillier still…OUCH!…

SUNRISE ADVERTISES…….

Ever since this writer heard the claim that the Manager uses the Sentinel to place job ads…for LBTS…I have dutifully been checking…how it is used …level of positions offered from municipalities…and who uses it….due to the poor hiring practice I believe have been used in this current administration…well it’s a 1st…Sunrise  has an ad in for Assistant Town Manager…after looking  for over a month….(overview and qualifications below)…

As previously posted…it showed up until this ad… it was used for staff positions ..those under department heads…not top tier offerings…as posted on  Datagram…from Fl. League of Cities…which states it is for the top dept jobs….publishes 2 times monthly…and must be a “clearinghouse” for those qualified applicants…who would no doubt usurp the staff “elevated” through the Manager’s decision not to produce any competition..YIKES!…

1/11/09 Sentinel… Assistant Manager for the City of Sunrise…Salary $101.295-$139,637….they are seeking an experienced leader with “well documented” management success…must have a Bachelors Degree in public administration, business administration from an accredited college  or university  or related field. Masters Degree is preferred . A minimum of 5 years of progressive management and leadership experience  in full- service local government with at least 3 years in senior level position.
