Guidance needed 121700 - The Augusta Chronicle



I don't understand the structure or functioning of the Augusta-Richmond County government. Concerning the hiring of a replacement administrator, Mayor Bob Young was quoted as saying, "We need someone who can help provide some of that guidance internally."

I was under the impression that the function of the administrator is to implement the policies provided by the collective wisdom of the Augusta Commission. Is Mayor Young suggesting a reversal of roles for the administrator and commissioners?
