Steve Olmsted would make a much better qualified City Manager than Riviere.
His implementation of cross-training building inspectors with code enforcement was an intelligent and creative response to the unique set of circumstances the City was facing at the time. This highlights the significant difference between someone with years of actual city management experience and someone who is pretending he has the background required.
Where is the City Council on this? They must see the disconnect between what Riviere's lack of experience has wrought and his complete lack of understanding how the machinery of local government works compounded by utter tone deafness to hearing the needs of the public. The contractors nearly had to run him off on a rail to get his attention.
Marco Island deserves better. We deserve a professional manager.
