Hunt for city manager over

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

Chiefland has a new city manager, though there was little discussion May 21 on the matter before commissioners unanimously approved applicant Kevin Gay's contract for the job.

Gay, who said he would start work the next day, will start out with a salary of $64, 500 a year, which is $4,500 more than commissioners had agreed upon at a workshop two weeks prior.

"I made some concessions, and he made some concessions," Mayor Teal Pomeroy said of his earlier contract negotiations with Gay. "I think it's pretty fair."

Commissioner Rollin Hudson was the only one to ask any questions on the matter at the meeting, wanting clarification on a portion of Gay's contract regarding the use of a city vehicle.

The contract states that Gay will have use of a city-owned and maintained vehicle as long as he lives within 10 miles of city limits.

"Until such time that Employee resides within 10 miles of the City of Chiefland Employer agrees to a gas allowance equal to one tank of gas per week for the Employee's personal vehicle," his contract states.
