New City Organizational Model Needed

Dear City Council Members

Before entering into the quest for a new city manager, I suggest you

· *Hire a (non-traditional) consultant to offer alternative
organizational and staffing models for a small city such as ours.*

· *Get these new models on the table before new committees are
created, to help them profile the next city manager. *

We have always had retention issues because good people want to move to
larger cities.

And now the problem is exacerbated because employment is so tight. Most
neighboring cities are struggling to retain and hire new staff.

 A staff of 287 for our small city is excessive, even if the slots are not
filled. We should probably freeze hiring, or most hiring, until the review
is done.

Thanks, Mickie Winkler, former Menlo Park Mayor
