My two cents.
I have been told that Warren Pike was driving a city lawn mower, cutting grass the day when Ken Parker was hired as City Manager. Mr. Pike jumped off his mower and was the first city employee to shake Parker’s hand, as a result, Parker made him the Public Works Director. The Good O’l Boys club hiring practice may have been OK 27 years ago when Port Orange was a sleepy little town.
However, now that Port Orange is a mature city with many complex engineering challenges the Director of Public Works should be a licensed Professional Engineer as a minimum. Is Ms Anderson a licensed PE?
Now that the former City Manager is retired, perhaps now his hiring policies should also be retired.

This situation with the Public Works director not changing her auto tag in
accordance with State law is very disconcerting.
How is it that neither you or your executive assistants OR THE POLICE
noticed this in her 10 months of City employment ??
Doesn’t she come to City Hall on a regular basis, and do you all not
likewise visit Public Works on occasion ??
Has she been receiving special treatment not afforded ordinary citizens in
Port Orange ????

> Greg I have a question and included some information I have obtained. If
we have a city employee who is violating the law how do we handle this? Can
we get this corrected immediately? Is this employees Drivers License also
not changed to being a Florida License? Once again we are having
accountability issues and this does not make any of it look better to us the
