Recent Wylie News employment advertisements
Lavon was simply too podunk and did not have the money to hire a city manager or city administrator. Sure, it was talked about when the mass exodus of employees and volunteers took place from late 2013 to early 2014 citing the city secretary for her odd behavior as the catalyst for their departure, but council mistakenly thought Mayor Teske could handle everything as acting city manager. Except, he was part of the problem.
It's kind of hard to pretend that the volunteer quilting group and head of the activity center didn't walk out because of the city secretary's behavior. Indeed, the group can be located at one of the local churches there, probably still holding their pot luck Tuesdays.
It's also hard for Lavon to pretend that five employees did not leave because of the city secretary as well, considering they left a long paper trail of formal complaints behind them. Still, Mayor Teske and the bobbleheads on council back then seemed to know better.
Fast forward to now. Those who left Lavon are still employed with the organizations they left for, nearly three years later. So how can it be that Lavon council members at the time pretend that those employees were the problem? Well, obviously they weren't. Hence the interesting job advertisements that showed up in the Wylie News the other week. It seems, the City of Lavon is hiring for a secretary and an administrator.
