More Tontitown Shenanigans
Posted: September 16, 2013 at 2 a.m.
We all knew it was coming. The writing was on the wall. The new water and sewer director of Tontitown was being pushed out of his job. Hired as a director but within one year he was demoted to fi eld operations manager. Folks, they are messing with our 78 percent vote in 2012 to establish a water committee in favor of a public works director hired by the mayor and governed by the council committee. They — meaning Mayor Beckford and aldermen Clint, Mike, Bobby and Joey — are trying to change the structure chart of the city by putting Ken Bailey (code enforcer) as a public works director. If this happens, did you know that Ken will have received two pay increases within a nine-month period of 30 percent.
