"...City Manager Marc Ott recently tasked Assistant City Manager Sue Edwards with righting the ship and providing the missing management structure.

We've got enough people who really care about this, within and outside the organization, and we're devoting enough resources, that we're going to get it done."..."
"...What would a fairy tale be if not for a damsel in distress, an evil witch, and a heroic prince? For the first, we have Rosamund, the wide-eyed but gutsy daughter of the richest planter around. Though her character is demure, student Emily Ott gives a performance that's quite mature – her succinct comic timing is backed up by her strong singing voice..."
"...It would seem that after a months-long, nationwide candidate search, City Manager Marc Ott was not feeling the love. It probably didn't help that on Monday, Davis announced he was dropping out of the contest..."
"...City Manager Marc Ott delivered a budget development update to City Council this week – a memo outlining some $28.5 million in potential cuts.

"...(Council Members Ora Houston and Greg Casar were also in attendance, but did not speak.) Speakers covered a wide range of topics, including body cameras for APD and the Travis County Sheriff's Office, job opportunities for felons, early education programs, gentrification, and police shootings – as host Clifford Gillard put it, "Mr. Mayor, I don't want to wake up one morning this summer and hear APD shot another black person."
