Among the agenda items for Monday evening’s Henderson City Council meeting, council members will discuss extending City Manager Frank Frazier’s contract for employment on a month-to-month basis.
Frazier’s contract with the City is currently set to expire at the end of July.
Frazier, who has served as city manager since 2015, announced his intentions to retire once a successor is named for the position.
Mayor Eddie Ellington, who has been privy to closed sessions involving Frazier, gave this statement to WIZS News:
“We are at a significant moment for the City of Henderson. Our city manager announced to the Henderson City Council a few weeks ago that he plans to retire, with his contract coming to an end this month. We have agreed to keep him on as city manager on a monthly basis as we have set in motion the process of hiring a new manager.
Frank Frazier and I started just a few months shy of each other, with myself as mayor and him city manager. I am pleased with what we have accomplished in our years together, but there is still work that must be carried out for the betterment of our city. The most important is finding the right person to succeed Mr. Frazier. This is a charge that I must lead, for this is our future and I know the citizens of Henderson share my concerns.”
Mayor Ellington recently filed for re-election in the October 8, 2019, City of Henderson election. Filing began on July 5, 2019, and will end on July 19, 2019, at 12 p.m.
