Council Members Tweak Charter Proposals during Work Session
City Attorney Scott McClure explained that "it needs to go on the ballot making it flexible."
More discussion the title change for Director of Finance and Administration.
Mayor Steve Williams asked, "Is city manager the appropriate title," noting that during the charter committee meeting titles ranged from "city operations manager" to "municipal operations manager."
"The concern is making sure the [electorate] understands this is a change of title, not of government," he said.
Council vice chairman Scott Caserta offered to amend the title to "director of operations." He placed his intention on the table stating that he would take comments from council members until Monday night. Based on the feedback from speaking council members at the work session Sandra Clements favored city manager.
"I think the title should be city manager," stated Frances Jackson.
Make Bates countered, "if it's not going to be city manager, leave it what it is."
David Ball stated, "My favorite is municipal operations manager."
