Scott Lazenby explained that the City Manager is appointed by the City Council,who also appoint the City Attorney and Municipal Court judge. Scott explained the basic services that the City provides from maintaining parks to running the water treatment plant and meals on wheels. Scott also shared an idea to start a new internship wherein recent high school grads who do not want to go to college would get hired in an entry level position with the City and then work part time towards a bachelor's degree with tuition reimbursement from the City.
