No; the city manager is appointed by the council, by council action.
Now the city manager, as I understand it, is appointed by the council or by the mayor?
I understand that Mr. Crull had been serving as city manager for quite some time?
I understand then that the chief of police is appointed by the city manager completely?
They have a municipality, and they work under a city manager.
Does the city council or mayor confirm the appointees of the city manager?
What is the jurisdiction of the city manager as compared to the chief of police, does he have authority over the chief of police?
Did you have any contact with city manager Crull during that time?
Does the council make any other appointments than the appointment of the city manager?
Well, the chief appointed me, I'm sure, on the approval of the city manager.
