Mayor Hardwick names Ronald Cook second in command
Mayor Hardwick originally brought the matter up in a Special Called meeting, but was challenged by Sharon Burton, Publisher of the Adair County Community Voice, after the Mayor said the succession Executive Order was the main reason he had called the meeting. Burton asked if that were the case, why had the item not been on the agenda, since only agenda items can be discussed in a special called meeting. Mayor Hardwick did not proceed with the announcement and adjourned the meeting, and passed copies of the order to the Council Members and the media.
By Ed Waggener
Columbia Mayor Curtis Hardwick has issued Executive Order No. 2015-02, which delegates to Ronald Cook "the authority and power to perform any and all necessary executive functions, other than the ability to approve ordinances or promulgate regulations, and to hire or terminate employees, for the City of Columbia," should Mayor Hardwick become incapacitated due to health reasons.
The order names Ann Austin as an alternate after Cook. Both are City of Columbia employees.
The order further gives, in the event of the Mayor's incapacity due to health reasons, "the ability to approve ordinances or promulgate regulations to council member Ron Rogers," with Council Member Craig Lasley as an alternate.
The order was signed May 14, 2015 by Curtis Hardwick, Mayor, and Notarized by Ann Austin.
