The council agreed that the management committee will continue to make recommendations for employment, and those recommendations will then go to the city council for final approval. The council members on the executive committee will not sit in on hiring decisions. They do vote on the recommendations at the city council meeting.

All council members offered their services to serve on the committee, Mayor Jane Robbins plans to finalize the appointments by a special workshop meeting, Saturday, January 10th.
