The Rochelle City Council took no action last night on the renewal of the contract for City Manager David Plyman.
The proposal was for no date set on the agreement as it would be indefinite. Both the city and Plyman would have 60 days to give notice if they wanted the terminate the contract.
Councilman Bil Hayes, who was not at last night's meeting, wanted further discussion of the agreement before it was approved. It was then taken off the agenda.
Councilwoman Kathy Hollonbeck told Newstalk 1060 that she wanted to see a document before voting on the issue. She believes the contract will be approved at a future council meeting.
Plyman has been City Manager in Rochelle since May 31st, 2011.
City officials did approve a grant for the solar plant at the water reclamation facility that totals $500,000. The 230 kilowatt solar plant is expected to pay for itself in just over 4 years.
The solar plant will be in a flood plain on about 1 1/2 acres.
It was mentioned last night that former City Manager Bob Walker died earlier this month. He was the 1st City Manager for Rochelle.
The wife of former City Manager Ken Alberts also died on Sunday following a fall in Cedar Falls, Iowa. Linda Alberts was 69 years old.
The council met in executive session to talk about personnel. No action was taken.
Also absent from last night's meeting were Councilmen Ed Rice and Dave Eckhardt.
