Joplin's city manager gets a list of job improvement recommendations-officials mum on specifics

Updated:


Joplin's city manager gets a list of job improvement recommendations from the city council but officials are mum on specifics. 

The  Joplin city council went into closed session last night to discuss areas of concern with City Manager Mark Rohr.
 The city is citing "personnel issue" as reason for not releasing the actual list of recommendations for the city manager. But Mayor Melodee Colbert-Kean  calls the list "enhancements"  to the job requirements that are already public in the city manager's job description. 

Rohr recently was targeted for firing by some members of council but not enough votes were cast. At a meeting Tuesday night, the council voted to go into closed session. There Rohr was given a list  that the mayor says includes specific directives as well as expectations of his approach to the job.

The mayor says it's not related to the public works department shake-up and should have happened sooner. Colbert-Kean says, " Some things should have been done a while back ago as far as documenting what we needed and expected of our city manager.  But like I said that's neither here nor there. We didn't do it.  Now  we got it done and what our focus  is now is pulling together, making sure we help him be the best city manager he can be."
