DeFuniak City Council on Track to Rehire City Manager

Defuniak Springs City Council Members say they are still on track to rehire city manger Mike Standley next Monday.

Standley was the Defuniak Springs City Manager for 21 years, before abruptly resigning in 2005, without giving an explanation.

Council members had cited his previous employment as reason for waiving an interview, reference, background and credit checks, but recently council members changed their minds, requesting those reviews. However, they may not be complete before Standly is scheduled to begin as new city manager on Monday.

Mayor Harold Carpenter says he will not sign Standley’s contract.

    I would hardly call giving a one month notice after 21 years abrupt. Do your research. There are archived articles referring to it as "early retirement.". As for his previous position with Regional Utilities, they (Regional) should be thankful he didn't disclose why he was asked to leave. Everyone who knows this man, knows that he is a good and honest person. Just ask anyone that has ever worked for/with him. Walton county is full of corruption. I hope, in this case, we don't allow the corrupt to destroy the integrity and reputation of a good person.
