Statesboro City Council members voted Tuesday to extend interim city manager Frank Parker’s contract by six months, as well as give him a raise. Councilman Travis Chance opposed the other council member’s votes, stating he did not agree with spending more money when the original reason for hiring Parker was to save money. Parker, a former Statesboro city councilman, is facing a couple more weeks on the second of two 30-day terms, having been hired originally as interim manager for $3,000 a month, on a rolling 30 day contract that was renewable at the end of each term.
