Vernon Mayor says city manager is incompetent

VERNON, TX (KAUZ) -

Joe Rogers, the Vernon Mayor is accusing Joe Jarosek, the city manager, of being incompetent and making poor decisions.

Mayor Rogers said he does not have trust or confidence in Jarosek and has received false information from him over time.

“I’m disheartened by that kind of analysis. I’ve contributed greatly to the progress of the city. I’m certainly not perfect, but I’m far from being incompetent,” said Jarosek.
At Tuesday’s city commission meeting, Mayor Rogers gave Jarosek an "F" on his performance review during the executive session.

Jarosek wanted to open the meeting back up so the public could hear how Mayor Rogers felt and the nonconstructive criticism he was giving to the city manager.

Two separate decisions made by Jarosek were addressed in front of the city commissioners and residents Tuesday.
Mayor Roger said he did not approve of Jarosek
s actions regarding the transport of a patient to a hospital outside of Vernon.

        I feel that's wrong when we start putting citizens lives in danger.  I have a real issue with that, said Mayor Rogers.
Jarosek backs his decisions and said it was made while in communication with medical personnel.
       
I was given an explanation that the patient wasn't being moved because it was too risky, but I didn't dictate to them what they should and should not be doing at that time, said Jarosek.

Rogers said another issue is the way he handled the resignation of former fire chief Marcus Smith. 

       
He went to the fire department and told the firemen that they could not speak to the commissioners on certain things, said Rogers.
Jarosek said he was following state laws and was even backed by some of the Vernon Firefighters at the meeting.

Mayor Rogers said he will work with Jarosek, but believes he is not good for the city of Vernon.
Jarosek said he just wants to move forward and continue to serve his city because there are more important issues to address.
