Council OKs new administrative position

On Tuesday night, the City Council listened to City Manager David Fraser propose his idea to create the new administrative officer position.

According to Fraser, this position will be filled by someone who is already working for the city. That person will keep his or her current responsibilities but will also be given additional responsibilities that will be assigned by Fraser.

“The city manager would be able to assign this person duties, which will vary from time to time, (such as) special projects. It will provide me an opportunity to be more proactive to what is important, as opposed to being reactive to what is urgent,” Fraser said.

The salary for the administrative officer position, which is approximately $4,800 every two weeks, will increase the city’s annual budget by $22,069, and $8,485 for the 2015-2016 fiscal year.

The position was approved by the council late last night and is expected to be filled in the near future.
