The Council agreed to revise the language of the ordinance to allow for more flexibility, and a new second reading will be scheduled.
Meade then read an ordinance that would re-classify the position of City Clerk, reducing the job’s pay grade and limiting the clerk’s duties to only those expressly defined within the Kentucky Revised Statues.
Specifically, the ordinance would also prohibit the City Clerk from exercising any “managerial or administrative authority over any city departments or personnel therein, including purchasing decisions” and also requires that “all duties related to utility operations outside the scope of City Clerk duties shall cease on adoption of this ordinance.”
The work session for the electric rate ordinance is scheduled for April 9 at 6 p.m. and the next regular Council meeting will be held on April 16 at 6 p.m. Both meetings will be at the Olive Hill Senior Community Center.
