The Board of Mayor and commissioners (BOMC) and City Manager Clai Brown announce that they have reached a mutually acceptable agreement that will allow the parties to move forward in a positive and productive way. Mr. Brown’s last day as City Manager was Wednesday, February 14, 2018. However, Mr. Brown will continue to serve as a consultant to the city through June 30, in order to ease the transition for a new City Manager. Although there is no such thing as a perfect solution to a situation such as this, each of us is confident that we are doing what is fair for all concerned, and in the best interest of our community.

The parties understand that the last two months since Mr. Brown announced his resignation as City Manager, have been challenging for the BOMC, Mr. Brown, City Staff, and the citizens of Avondale Estates. Mayor Jonathan Elmore said, “I speak for both our BOMC, as well as Mr. Brown, when I say that all of us love our City and want it to prosper and continue to be a wonderful place to live and raise a family. None of us want anything but the best for Avondale Estates, our citizens, and for one another. In no way do we want to have division in our community. In fact, we want quite the opposite. We want harmony. Because of our mutual commitment to this community, we have worked over the past month to find a way to fairly address the issues between us.”

The BOMC thanks Mr. Brown for his ten years of devoted service to the community. Mr. Brown expressed his appreciation to the citizens of our City and all those who have served on the BOMC during his tenure for affording him the opportunity to serve as City Manager. We each wish the other well in the future and are confident that great things lie ahead for the City of Avondale Estates.
