Employee cut, reducing mayor's salary to be considered by Tenaha City Council this afternoon

Budgetary reasons are leading the Tenaha City Council toward possibly eliminating a full-time employee and possible reduction in the mayor's salary to $100 a week.


The council will discuss these items and may take action during their meeting at 5:15 p.m. tonight.


According to the agenda, the reduction in force is the position held by utility department employee Matt Barton. Tenaha City Council would also consider a severance package in exchange for waiving any legal action against the city.


The cut in the mayor's salary would take affect following the mayoral election in 2016. The mayor currently receives a $1,590 a month salary.


In other business for discussion and possible action will be approving the Employee Handbook, and proposal by Utility Superintendent Stacy Cranford of a 6-inch water main expansion project.
