Green council will vote July 10 whether to approve seven recommended amendments to the city’s charter. The main proposal concerns term limits for the mayor.
The others, which would face a public vote Nov. 6, would:
•?Require the mayor to devote his entire time and effort during regular business hours and all other times as necessary to properly conduct the city’s business.
•?Provide new time limits for city council to fill a vacancy on council in not less than 30 days or more than 45 days or the decision falls to the mayor.
•?Allow city council to approve changes to rules and regulations of the Civil Service Commission that differ from those established by the Ohio Revised Code.
•?Allow up to 15 percent of the unused 7 percent allocated from Green income tax revenue to the Parks and Recreation Division for capital projects to be used for special events and programming. The division is to receive $1.1 million this year for capital projects.
•?Add a section to allow council to correct typographical errors in the charter and make corrections so the charter is compliant and consistent with Ohio law.
•?Change the Civil Service classification for the position of administrative coordinator (law) to unclassified when a fiduciary relationship exists requiring the employee to be exempt from Civil Service status for several reasons, including a high degree of trust, confidence, reliance, integrity and fidelity.
