Midway city manager fired

-A A +A

Move comes amid complaints of unpaid subcontractors, lack of communication

By Alice Du Pont

Midway’s City Manager, Auburn Ford Jr., was terminated Jan. 3 during the regular monthly meeting of the city council. Ford became permanent city manager Oct. 4, 2011, after Agatha Muse Salters was terminated.

Ford said he was disappointed in the action taken and he thought the city was moving forward quickly.
Councilwoman Allean Robinson made the motion to fire Ford after she expressed concerns about his leadership skills and said she had received a complaint from subcontractors (doing work on the fire station currently under contraction) who were not paid.
