Charter Amendment Establishing Process For Appointing And Removing City Attorney[1][2]


The question on the ballot:

Shall the City amend the City Charter to include the process for appointing and removing the city attorney?[1][2]


The City Council currently hires a city attorney to represent the City in legal matters. The city attorney is appointed and removed by the Council; therefore, the city attorney reports directly to the City Council. This addition to the Charter recognizes the City’s current practice.[1][2]
