Now that Mayor Robertson's has wrapped up his Olympic Village news conference, and the bizarre briefing conducted by unnamed senior management at City Hall, it appears staff are preparing for what they are calling "Black Monday."
The Mayor has called yet another in-camera meeting (there goes openness and transparency again) for Monday at 9:30 am. Sources have told CityCaucus.com that one of the key items on the agenda is 'personnel issues'. Given everything that's transpired at City Hall over the last 4 weeks, it's likely that Council will be briefed on recommendations from the City Manager regarding which staff need to be held accountable for the Olympic Village development issue.
Morale at City Hall continues to plummet, with middle to senior level managers running for the hills. With the exception of a chosen few management staff, it would appear that no one is safe from the axe.
Mayor Robertson eluded to Black Monday when he told the media that he wasn't going to shy away from the tough decisions that needed to be made over the coming weeks. Might some of those decisions relate to the in-camera personnel item on Monday?
