City Council Meeting

City Council has a special meeting scheduled for tonight, opening with citizen comments, then moving into closed session for a discussion regarding employees.  I would bet they will be discussing the termination of Chief Jody O'Guinn and hiring his replacement. I have heard third hand that council wants to bring in another outsider to head up the department in order to bring fresh eyes  and "shake things up".

I would much rather see acting chief Jeff Grubbs offered the position. The last outsider, O'Guinn, apparently didn't work out that well and we could expect someone unfamiliar with Carbondale to take at least a year to get familiar with the operation of the department as well as Carbondale itself.
