The City of Cairo has launched its search for a gas superintendent (1/27).

The City Council voted to create the position and take away two others that are currently vacant in the city's gas department.

The decision comes following an investigation by the Public Safety Commission into the September 2010 gas explosion that killed one city worker and injured several others.

As a result --- the commission recommended a gas superintendent be added to the payroll to keep an eye on the maintenance and repair of Cairo gas lines --- and to make sure proper procedure is always followed.

The City says its search will be on-going until a suitable candidate is found.

    What the City of Cairo needs is patrol officer that reports on all the city trucks parked midday (morning & afternoon) at telephone office, post office, grocery store, McDonalds, Dairy Queen and other areas during work hours. I hear they are starting to check on the misuse of city property...all I can say is it took them long enough to wake up to what's been going on. Think of all the tax paper money that could be saved if they could get the misuse of city property under control...from the top down...

    Just another excuse to put a "buddy" on the payroll and give them a city vehicle to run up and down the streets on, while taking care of personal business on city time...what's NEW??? What Cairo needs is a professional administrator that can run the city like us business owners run our businesses! (lean and mean)
