We caught a break, a few month’s worth at least, from all those eyesore political signs — they’ll start popping up with yard sale signs attached to them once everyone does their spring cleaning.
And that’s exactly what the voters in High Springs did to city hall — cleaned it out.
There is a lot [...]
A meeting has been called for Wednesday, August 15, at 6:30pm, with an unusual item coming third on the agenda.
Resolution 2012-L, which serves as notification to City Manager Jeri Langman the commission intends to terminate her employment, will be voted on during the special meeting.
No other details, including which commissioner(s) called for the [...]
In an unusual occurrence, Vice-Mayor Bob Barnas took the liberty of offering a motion to hire former office manager and current interim city manager Jeri Langman as High Springs’ permanent city manager during his comments at the end of the meeting, long after most of the audience left the room.
After delivering his resignation Monday citing differences with Interim City Manager Jeri Langman, former Lietenant and acting police chief Bill Benck found himself without a job Thursday after Langman terminated his employment with the city effective immediately.
Benck, a nearly 30 year veteran of law enforcement in Gainesville, gave the interim manager two weeks notice to allow her [...]
The city of High Springs selected a new city attorney Tuesday night but not without a tad bit of drama.
Raymond Ivey, an attorney with the nearly 70 year old Gainesville firm Scruggs & Carmichael, was selected to serve as the new city attorney following last week’s resignation city attorney Thomas DePeter. DePeter resigned following [...]
A divided city commission is moving ahead with a move that has at least one citizen saying the deal is a bad one for the city.
“Guys, there’s no upside to Poe Springs” resident Ron Langman said during citizens’ comments during the Tuesday night special meeting.
Langman, who is married to interim city manager Jeri Langman, [...]
A special meeting has been called by High Springs commissioners for Tuesday, January 17, with only two agenda items: a final vote on the decision to operate Alachua County’s Poe Springs Park, and narrow down the field of city manager applicants and schedule interviews with the applicants.
The vote on Poe Springs comes after several [...]
Starting at 5pm and running until 11:15pm, Thursday’s meeting had plenty of testy exchanges, lots of split votes, and enough unfinished business it forced the commission to call another special meeting this Thursday at 6:30pm. Okay, there were technically two meetings back to back (CRA at 5pm and Commission at 6:30pm) but you get the [...]
After passionate debate both pro and con, the High Springs city commission voted 3-2 to appoint Jeri Langman, a former office manager and current city resident, as interim city manager, replacing Jenny Parham, who has served in the position for 14 months. Newly elected commissioners Bob Barnas and Linda Clark Gestrin joined Mayor Dean Davis [...]
The special city commission meeting this Tuesday may have been non-controversial when scheduled but now may be anything but the case. Some commissioners are pushing a new candidate be hired with no public process or application process.
