Longtime Decatur City Manager Brett Shannon received a contract extension at Monday’s meeting of the Decatur City Council.
Following a two-hour closed session for Shannon’s annual evaluation, the council unanimously agreed to extend his contract for another year and give him a 2 percent raise, effective Oct. 1.
The raise is the same percentage that city employees received in the 2019-2020 fiscal year budget that was recently approved.
In other business, the council took action on a number of rather routine items including the following:
“I don’t think there is ever any intention of the city to open Flusche Drive and build a street there, but the right of way is there, and there are utilities there,” said City Engineer Earl Smith. “So this is a standard form that we always use. The only thing it says is that if we ever do need to use the right of way, the property owner will have to move the sign, but we don’t foresee that intention.”
