Upset over the City Commission’s complaints about overzealous enforcement of Deltona’s sign laws, Acting City Manager Dave Denny said he will quit.
The resignation is supposed to take effect Dec. 31, unless Denny and a majority of commissioners can come to a meeting of minds that he should continue in the administrative post he has held since February following Faith Miller’s exit.
According to a statement released by the city’s Public Information Office, “At the request of the Commission, Mr. Denny has agreed to meet with the individual Commissioners to review the matter and possibly rescind the resignation.”
“Until he has had a chance to meet with the other commissioners, we don’t want to play this up,” Lee Lopez of the city’s Public Information Office told The Beacon.
Lopez could not say when the one-on-one meetings with city commissioners will take place, but said Denny had talked with two of the seven City Commission members already as of Nov. 27. Lopez would not name the commissioners.
