Albertson supports change of format

I just had a quick conversation with Ruston Councilman Dan Albertson, who is a proponent of changing to a town manager format of government. He called it "the best move we can make right now."

The job is too much for a part-timer, he said.

"It’s everything from the development of Point Ruston to lease negotiations at the school building to supervision of employees to the multiple legal actions we’re involved with. I don’t think you can ask someone to do that for virtually nothing. They either won’t be able to devote enough time to it, or they’re going to be so grossly underpaid for the effort that they put into it that it’s unreasonable to expect them to do it."
