During the recent period when the city was experiencing electrical problems, there was a time when both Mayor Glen Robertson and the mayor pro tem were out of town.  Obviously that’s not an ideal situation during a blackout.  Mayor Robertson said it resulted in a memo from the city manager.

“We were actually given a memo by the city manager not asking but almost demanding that we never leave town at the same time.  So we’re going to make sure we’re coordinated.  If we do happen to both be gone, we will name somebody in advance so that she will know who to call on.”
