SAVANNAH, Ga. — The mayor of Savannah has asked City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney to resign.

The city council plans to take up the issue during an Oct. 4 meeting. Officials say one hour will be allowed for public comments, with this comments limited to three minutes per person.

Some council members have questioned whether the city’s budget situation for 2013 is more severe than they have been told.

Their city manager has been a nightmare for Savannah

When it comes to screwing up, she makes Fred look like a piker.

I don't understand what it is

I don't understand what it is about government jobs and "asking" people to resign. If they're not doing the job or living up to standards then fire them already! This funny business about asking someone to resign is ridiculous. If they're trying to save face, it's rather pointless since the person already burnt enough bridges not doing their job.
