Council could vote to appoint Cameron city manager Aug. 11
Mayor Tom Tomzak reports that he and Interim City Manager Beverly Cameron have reached a tentative agreement on the terms of a contract to hire Cameron as city manager. The City Council is expected to vote on that contract Aug. 11.
Tomzak said Cameron’s 23 years’ experience as Fredericksburg’s assistant city manager are an asset to the city.
"A search [for outside candidates] would have been expensive and then we would have had somebody who would have needed a lot of on-the-job training," Tomzak said. "He really knows finance, he’s very fiscally conservative and very cognizant of the city’s bond rating."
Cameron yesterday declined comment until after council action.
