Who Can Solve New Port Richey's Financial Woes?
With the city manager leaving, the question remains unanswered.
City Manager John Schneiger apparently no longer wants to work for New Port Richey.
Schneiger reportedly feels he has lost the support of the majority of the city council and can no longer be an effective leader.
City leaders are poised to vote tonight on a separation agreement that severs him from his contract with the city. It also promises a severance payment of $44,000.
Schneiger is a finalist for the job of city manager of Roseburg, Ore. He won’t be at the New Port Richey City Council meeting tonight.
That leaves several lingering questions: What can be done about New Port Richey’s problematic financial situation? Can anyone steer the ship out of troubled waters? What would you like to see in Schneiger’s replacement?
