Is Fairbury City Administrator Joe Parker still employed or isnt he? Signals are mixed coming out of City Hall but preliminary indications point to a possible dismissal for Parker who has been city administrator since 2008.
Last week the personnel committee for the City of Fairbury, meet prior to the regular council meeting, recommended that Parkers contract not be renewed. The unanimous vote was struck by Doug Brown, Ed Friesen, Rick Carmichael and Roger Bailey. Each are members of the city council.
Following the meeting, Parker, who was in attendance, left and did not return for the council meeting immediately following. After the ensuing city council meeting the Journal-News spoke with councilman Roger Bailey who indicated, there may be a change coming at that position, but offered no further details.
