“There’s a lot of nonsense in the paper about why we’re doing it,” Zernich told the board. “It has nothing to do with bad feelings or bad karma. It has to do with money.”
June 14, 2011 – At a special meeting June 7, City Manager Jim Murphy made the Portola City Council an offer it did not refuse.
“The council voted on the elimination of one full-time employee and that would be me. We call it the ‘without Jim’ option,” he joked, then explained. “My salary is the highest. I am the oldest and the closest to retirement.”
Murphy had presented several options to the council members: ways to balance the upcoming budget without resorting to the rate increases currently under review by an ad hoc committee.
