Approval of amended minutes of the evening City Council meeting of February 9, 2005.


Addendum to Comments Regarding the Termination of City Manager George Wallace


Following the comments of Mr. Andre McCloud, Mr. Ralph Heath, III, 38 Northampton Drive, spoke. Mr. Heath believes he was falsely accused as being part of a coalition to fire the City Manager and black leaders of the City. He stated that with all the things that are going on in this City, he doesnt know how Council would logically think that any corporation would want to come to a City where the leaders cant agree. He stated that he doesnt understand why the City leaders would fire, what he believes to be, the most experienced person in the City. He stated that it was his understanding that the City Manager was to advise Council. He asked why the City would hire someone that the City Council refuses to listen to. He stated that the City Manager is supposed to be the expert and Council is supposed to support him, not dictate to him. Mr. Heath stated that he spends 3 or 4 nights every week supporting the City he loves. He wants to continue to do work for the city and he asked that Council not divide the City.
