Mayor calls special meeting for Friday
Mayor John Sullivan has called a special meeting for 4 p.m. Friday to discuss the proposed changes to the city’s charter, according to city spokeswoman Connie Barron.
The meeting will be a workshop only. No votes will be taken.
Although the charter amendments are also listed on the agenda for city council’s regular voting meeting Monday, May 16, the council will discuss changes proposed by City Manager Gary King and Councilmember Bill Deile.
King wants council members with inquiries and investigations to be “authorized via formal consensus” and for council members to have to deal solely with the city manager and not city employees when requesting information, according to city documentation.
Barron said this was not an emergency meeting.
Sullivan did not return phone calls for comment.
