Text of measure

Language on the ballot:

Shall Subsections 3.111, 3.113, and 3.114 of the City Charter be revised to provide for the hiring of assistant city attorney(s) by the City Attorney instead of the City Council to be consistent with the other City Charter officers -- the City Manager and City Clerk who hire their own assistants and staff?[1][2]
