Wichita city manager pokes fun at county’s contract issue

April 29, 2016 05:05 PM

“Unlike the county, you can’t unilaterally change contracts.”

– Wichita City Manager Robert Layton, joking with Mayor Jeff Longwell after Longwell asked if the City Council could change Layton’s contract and vote each year to retain him.

Earlier this month, public relations firm Bothner and Bradley was removed from a Sedgwick County road study days after a county commissioner said he personally didn’t like the company.
