AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Commissioners are battling over the amount of experience candidates for the city administrator job should have.
A commission sub-committee recommended the next administrator have at least 3-to-5 years on the job as a city manager or administrator. But some commissioners are calling for just 1-to-5 years experience.
“I’ve been part of of a lot of interviews during my tenure and never once has anyone of those other top positions required less than three years experience. So for us to dumb this down to one to five years or whatever I think it’s completely ridiculous,” said Commissioner Brandon Garrett.
Interim Administrator Jarvis Sims took over for Janice Jackson in April of last year so he only has one year’s experience
But city leaders saying he could still apply for the position.
