In response to the headline ("Council scraps finalists," March 9), about the city of Mason City not selecting any of the candidates for city administrator, I am wondering why we should continue the search and just stop it right now.
I have heard over and over from our mayor that Jacobson is doing a fine job, and we have a fine staff supporting him. Why do we need to add another $100,000-plus job to our payroll when it is working fine right now?
I agree with the mayor to a point: if it is working with the system in place right now (he said we are comfortable,) why don't we just name Jacobson administrator with his fine staff.
Our population is not getting any larger, and if things are working, why do we need to add more payroll?
