Image: Decor at City Council reorganization included swaths of tulle and white doves.

The atmosphere last Friday was quite cordial, but if what I heard today is true, will the City Council bill and coo when presented with a new twist in the cabinet saga?

Could it be that a departing department head will stay around until April Fools' Day?

Gee, I wish Dan would lend me his pointy stick!

Hi Bernice, good morning,

Wow! The decorations don't seem to have improved that much. I remember either last year, or the previous one, where swaths of roses were on the way of speakers. This year's swaths of doves reminds me of weddings, could there be a "power wedding" of some sort happening and we just don't know it yet? After all, for what I have heard the attendants were not only "handsomely dressed" but from unexpected organizations. Oh! The ins and outs of Plainfield! Gotta love this city!

If I were a betting man ,I would put my money on Browm being appointed to the City Administrator poost and acting director of finance etc. That would leave a vaccancy in public works since he was not sworn in on Friday, so th incimbent stays on until her replacment is found or she resigns.

Plainfield doesn't need a PW director. Abolish the position and save $100K

This all sounds a bit underhanded to me. I hope this isn't true. What happened to open communications and transparency? Maybe it is time to get out?

George Bush was headed west right after Obama was sworn in. Appoints are made to run concurrent with the Mayor's. So when they are appointed, they know their term expires on December 31st. it is no surprise. There is not even a notice required for termination...they got their notice the day they were appointed. And while the Mayor has the right to make temporary appointments, it would be nice if she communicated that information to Council.

If I were on Council, and had control of the budget, I would make the salary for temporary appointments $1 a day and then lets see how fast the Mayor gets off her (bleep bleep) and gets things done correctly.
