GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Gainesville Interim City Manager Cynthia Curry is eliminating three assistant city manager positions.

The three people serving in those roles; Fred Murry, Deborah Bowie and Andrea Agha, are now out of a job.

They’ll be replaced by a single position.

Gainesville Police Chief Tony Jones will temporarily step into the role starting next Monday.

In a letter to Mayor Poe and city commissioners, Curry says the move will help “ensure consistency in messaging and direction.”
