GRANT'S PASS, Ore. -- The City of Grants Pass announced this morning that they will not fill the position of Assistant City Manager (ACM). The position has been vacant since the previous ACM, David Reeves, retired late last year.
City Manager Aaron Cubic was quoted in a press release from the City, saying that the move comes after a careful examination of the organization and its "'ability to achieve Council goals [and] long-term financial sustainability.'" Cubic also said that elimination of the position would help to "'invest in our future and better meet the needs and expectation of our citizens.'"
The press release outlined estimated savings to the City of $191,200 per year. The City also estimates a total of about $30,900 in increased spending, as they promote and re-structure other positions within the organization.
"'These organizational changes will net the City approximately $160,000 annually,'" Cubic said.
The City did not outline in their press release how and where, exactly, these savings will be applied.
