§ 7.10. Referrals to City Manager  

Latest version.
  • Communications from council members must be directed to the city manager's office for follow-up. Requests for information from council members, other than for the resolution of routine constituent matters, shall go to the city manager instead of directly to the department heads. Basic information that does not involve or require a memorandum or a report may be requested directly by a council member to the city manager or his or her office. The city manager may require that a request for a written report or information be signed by the committee chair with jurisdiction on that matter, or by three council members. Notwithstanding the above, committee chairs may have direct contact with department directors or their supervisory staff regarding matters related to the committee's jurisdiction.
