Anita Ebersole Under Consideration To Head City's 311 Call Center

Monday, February 18, 2013

Anita Ebersole, deputy to Mayor Ron Littlefield, is under consideration to be named director of the city's 311 call center, city officials confirmed.

Richard Beeland of the mayor's office said there is discussion of a reorganization of the 311 Center. He said it would remain under the city Information Systems (IS) department.

He said the 311 Center has taken on additional significance, especially since the city contracted out the sewer billings.

Mr. Beeland said the flood of complaints about the new billings from a firm in California are directed at 311.

Mayor Littlefield recently moved to name Ms. Ebersole as the City Court clerk. However, with the city judges expressing their opposition and with some City Council members privately urging the mayor to withdraw the idea, Ms. Ebersole removed her name from consideration.

The 311 Center has long been headed by Liz Henley.

Ms. Ebersole formerly worked under Ms. Henley at 311. Mr. Beeland noted, "Anita Ebersole was at 311 at the start."

Under the new arrangement, Ms. Henley would be working under Ms. Ebersole.

Ms. Ebersole is slated to lose her current $98,538 city post with the change of administration in April.
