The two Rockwood City Council members who voted down Becky Ruppe as city administrator don’t have a problem with her filling that role.
Ruppe is already doing those duties anyway, they said.
Instead, council members Peggy Evans and Mike Freeman took issue with the proposed jump in pay for the position. That’s because they contend other city employees have not seen such an increase.
“In fact, I don’t care if he wants her as city administrator,” said Evans, of Mayor James Watts’ desire to see Ruppe in the role.
