City Manager Marc Ott will keep his job

Wednesday, March 30, 2016 by Eva Ruth Moravec

Following the evaluation in executive session of City Manager Marc Ott’s performance, Mayor Steve Adler told the Austin Monitor that Ott won’t be let go anytime soon. Adler said the performance review is ongoing – City Council will likely discuss goals, measures and priorities next week – but added late Tuesday, “It is my sense of the Council conversation that there’s not going to be a change in city manager.” Ott, appointed in 2008, was the last of four appointed employees to go through the performance evaluation. The city auditor, city clerk and municipal clerk have already undergone theirs, Adler said, adding that his sense was that none of the four would be replaced. As for whether any of the appointed staff will receive a raise, Council will make that decision in June.
