BACKGROUND:
Background
On November 19th, 2020, the Deltona City Commission voted to terminate their Contract with the Acting City Manager, Dr. Marc Antonie-Cooper. Subsequently, the Commission voted 6 to 1 to ask John A. Peters, III to assume the role as Acting City Manager, which was later that evening accepted by Mr. Peters.

Due to the unique role of the position of Acting City Manager, it is necessary to negotiate and approve a contract to memorialize the expectations and responsibilities of the Acting City Manager. Mr. Peters and the City Attorney, Skip Fowler, have met in person and telephonically on several occasions to iron out the contract that is before you this evening. This contract includes financial matters such as salary, car allowance, retirement and benefits, evaluations that will occur every three months, normal contract languages expected for a position of this nature inclusive of methods of termination of contract, and includes a copy of the International City Manager's Association (ICMA) Code of Ethics which is made a part of this contract.

I will provide a short presentation at the meeting prior to comments from the Commissioners and the public.
