Tybee City Manager finalist for another city manager position

Posted: Updated:
TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

Tybee Island is dealing with an unexpected personnel issue at the very top. Their City Manager, Diane Schleicher has been announced as a finalist for another City Manager job in another Georgia City.

St. Mary's, GA just announced Schleicher as one of three candidates they will be hosting on Thursday for interviews in the morning and public meet and greet at night.

It's no secret Schleicher has had some people who have wanted to see her go in the not so distant past, but she has continued to have majority support from the mayor and council on the island.

Schleicher came to Tybee as City Manager in May 2006, almost eight years ago.

But will Tybee Mayor Jason Buelterman and council members who supper her let her go so easily? The mayor said today they may discuss the status of the city manager at a budget workshop meeting on Wednesday night at 5:30.

Since they will be talking budgets, some wonder if the council will talk about a pay raise to try to keep Schleicher before she even makes a decision or is chosen.

The budget workshop will be held at the Tybee City Hall Auditorium.
