  8. Annise Parker sent out an email today titled, Controller's Newsletter. In her newsletter, she mentions BARC and gives some great ideas. By so many accounts, turnaround expert-BARC Interim Director Gerry Fusco is doing an excellent job, but the city can save more than $100,000 and possibly find the right permanent BARC director if we start now, City Controller Annise Parker suggests. “I recommend that City Council reject the pending four-month $158,500 contract extension and accelerate the search for a new permanent BARC director," she said. Noting that city departments have cut budgets 3% in

We're waiting to hear if there's an official explanation, but Barton said Bailey was still on his probationary period and was therefore subject to at-will termination. http://blogs.houstonpress.com/hairballs/2009/08/barc_firings.php BARC went through some housecleaning yesterday -- in a big way.

The next day, he was in the agonizing throes of a fatal case of heatstroke. What happened in between has become a bitter dispute between Lovelace and the city of Houston. The Kingwood man says his dog, a Labrador-German shepherd mix, escaped his backyard for about 15 minutes after a meter reader left his fence gate open. In that time, Coltrane was picked up by police and turned over to animal control, where he was caged inside a truck for s
