SENTIMENT OF KEY WEST
COMMISSION TO CALL SPE
CIAL MEETING TO NAME
ANOTHER CITY MANAGER
Following a letter received from
David King, prospective city man
ager, in which he stated that he
couiu not secure his release from
the Berkeley, Michigan, city com
mission, sentiment among Key
West commissioners today seems
to be that a special meeting should
be held after Christmas and ac
tive choice made.
King has been voted city man
ager by the city commissioners
following his request for the job.
He stated in a phone call to the
city clerk last week that he had
contacted the Michigan city com
mission and that they had agreed
to release him January 16 and
that he would come to work on
December 26. The present letter
came as a surprise.
Mr. King aLso asks for reim
bursement of $26.40 for a trip
here and ohone calls to the city
clerk’s office.
Part of Mr. King’s letter fol
lows:
“I have been notified bv the
city commissioners of Berkeley,
Michigan, that they do not wish
to accept my resignation as city
manager. It i3 their desire that
I remain on my leave of absence
until I feci that Mrs. King is well
enough for me to return to Berke
ley. For that reason I could not
accept the position of eitv mana
ger of Key West . . . Am glad
to have met the city commission
of Key West and am sorry I can
ned work with them in helning to
solve the various problems.”
