Council to consider changes to city charter

POSTED: January 13, 2012 9:09 a.m.

The Richmond Hill City Council is considering changes to the city's charter that include allowing for the ellimination of the city manager position, limits to how often one can serve as mayor and more.

City attorney Ray Smith gave the council a summary of the changes Thursday night during a workshop at City Hall. Little discussion was held following Smith's presentation, though council member Russ Carpenter called the proposed charter a "radical change."

The council could hold a first reading on the proposed charter as early as its next regular meeting, which is at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall. However, the agenda for that meeting has not yet been established.

In other business, the council heard presentations from two area civil engineering firms, Thomas and Hutton of Savannah and Hussey, Gay, Bell and DeYoung, also of Savannah. The council is weighing its options for its engineering needs, but no decision was made Thursday night.
