Going nowhere

Shlomo Eshkol has been asked for the third time to continue serving as city engineer. Eshkol, who reached retirement age two years ago, has been implored to postpone his retirement twice during the last two years. A beacon of professionalism and gentleness, he agreed in 2015 to serve for an additional year, then for another six months. Now he has acceded to requests to extend his tenure until the end of the year.
