The Key West Citizen and Florida Keys Keynoter both reported on Smith's bid to the City Commission for the contract renewal.
The one exception to that posture came last year when he involved himself directly in a conflict with then City Manager Bob Vitas. Smith accused Vitas of engaging in extra-legal ways and that he effectively cut him, Smith, out of matters that should be the province of both.
So Vitas is gone. Scholl is back. And Smith will be around for four more years, good Lord willing and if the creeks don't rise.
