With city administrator David Rutherford’s last day on the job this Friday, the big question pertaining to McMinnville city government is what happens next?Will city officials work toward a full-time mayor? Will they keep the city administrator position? If they keep a city administrator, will they hire someone local?“There are a lot of questions the board will have to decide,” said Mayor Jimmy Haley.All three city aldermen who were elected in November – Mike Neal, Ben Newman and Jimmy Bonner – said during the election they were in favor of a full-time mayor, not a city administrator.
