Marshville, NC - Council members in Marshville say they will not show up to the scheduled April 9th, 2014 meeting, because they've already decided what to do.

The council members had been debating if the town should switch their form of government, but they've told My FOX Carolinas that they'll keep things the way they are.

Marshville is run by a council/town manager form of government. The town manager handles the day to day operations, based on the direction of the town's council. In this system, council hires a town manager.

Fern Shubert has been serving as interim town manager, after Amanda Reid resigned. Shubert is scheduled to serve through June 2014, although she has indicated she will stay longer if needed.

No word on if council will ask Shubert to continue in her role, or if they will find someone else to become Marshville's manager.
