Without knowing what the entire scope of responsibility will be as the head man for the Community Redevelopment Agency, the city’s chief planner will move into the spot temporarily while the agency’s five-year plan is finalized and while City Manager George A. Long continues to look for a replacement.

At today, Wednesday’s, meeting, Bob Wiegers will be recommended to the seven-member board as replacement for Andy Laurent and Bartow Consulting, who and which has been serving as interim executive director the past 20 months. Though this extension of Wiegers’ duties is not termed “interim,” he will be serving the purpose of carrying out management and administrative duties with the help of the CRA’s only full-time employee, Gail Murray. He will also function under the code established where the executive director is an employee under the supervision of the city manager.
