Our thoughts... A wise coun­cil

The Covington News - - Local news -

The city coun­cil of Cov­ing­ton made a wise de­ci­sion in re­struc­tur­ing the man­age­ment of the city, a rec­om­men­da­tion made by City Man­ager Steve Horton.

Hav­ing an as­sis­tant city man­ager in a city the size of Cov­ing­ton does not make sense. Horton rec­og­nized that and his rec­om­men­da­tion that the man­age­ment of the city be split into three branches with three dis­tinct and equal man­agers, al­lows the city man­ager and coun­cil to have the ad­vice and di­rec­tion of three tal­ented leaders.

The se­lec­tion of Po­lice Chief Stacey Cot­ton to man­age pub­lic safety, Bill Meecham over pub­lic ser­vices and Ron­nie Cowan as di­rec­tor of ad­min­is­tra­tive ser­vices, was an­other fine de­ci­sion by the city man­ager and coun­cil.

The city coun­cil of Cov­ing­ton has made some pru­dent de­ci­sions this past year; we look for­ward to the same in 2009.
