For cities, the City Manager and the Commission have offered salvation.
Now the city manager, as I understand it, is appointed by the council or by the mayor?
No; the city manager is appointed by the council, by council action.
I understand that Mr. Crull had been serving as city manager for quite some time?
Could you describe briefly for us the relationship between the mayor and the council and the city manager?
In other words, the city manager really has the detailed administration of city affairs?
Does the council make any other appointments than the appointment of the city manager?
I understand then that the chief of police is appointed by the city manager completely?
Does the city council or mayor confirm the appointees of the city manager?
Did you have any contact with City Manager Crull during that time?
