In October, 2016, ‘Council Approved’ the hiring of Todd Parton from Kerrville, Texas. Parton was not qualified to be a city manager in the State of California because he proudly knew nothing about California State Laws.
A year later Parton declares that he needs an Assistant City Manager. Parton doesn’t need Accountants or Firemen or a Planning Director and City Attorney that upholds State and Federal Laws; he just needs an Assistant Manager.
On November 21, 2017, ‘Council Approved’ the hiring of Kristine Day as Beaumont City Manager along with a $266,591 Salary and Benefit Packet: https://beaumont.civicweb.net/document/10046/Item%2015.pdf?handle=E3CD830CC57C45F886B56381EA6A8EE7
