It was nearly standing room only at the Jacksonville City Council Meeting Tuesday night, as folks showed up to voice their opinions about the recent firing of the City Manager.

One by one current employees of the City of Jacksonville as well as city residents looked council members straight in the eye, and voiced their concern about former City Manager Kristoff Bauer unexpected firing last week.

The packed house roared with applause and stood on their feet as each city employee or city resident finished with their opinions.

In a 4 to 2 vote last week Bauer was ousted from a position he held with the city for more than 3 years.

Assistant City Manager Ron Massey will now serve as Interim City Manager. The city also decided to approve their 43.5 million dollar budget at the meeting
