Posted by: Daniel Curtis - bio | email

 

DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) – The Dothan City Commission was once again voting on a contract for their city manager Tuesday.

 

In a close 4 to 3 vote the commission voted to renew City Manager Mike West's contract for three years.

 

Before voting though commissioners discussed for more twenty minutes the details of contract.

 

Commissioners James Redding, Amos Newsome and Keith Seagle were against the offer.

 

"So while I wish our city manager well I must again decline to sign a contract that I do not feel adequately protects the interest of the people," said Commissioner Keith Seagle.

 

"I agree with those sections I agree with, those I disagree with the answer is no," said Commissioner Amos Newsome.

 

However, the rest of the commission praised West calling him a great asset to the city.

 

"We need his professionalism and his experience so I am proud that you are here and that you want to be here," said Mayor Mike Schmitz.

 

"The future of Dothan looks bright and I am just going to enjoy being a part of that future and I appreciate all of the support that I have had from the city commissioners as well as the public," said City Manager Mike West after the meeting.

 

West say's he enjoys being a part of the Dothan community and looks forward to being a part of Dothan's future.

 

West has been Dothan's city manager now for five years.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
