HAWAIIAN GARDENS : Voters Will Decide How City Clerk Is Selected

November 17, 1994|STEVE EAMES

Voters will be asked to decide next March whether the city clerk should be elected or continue to be appointed by the City Council.

The council voted 4-1 last week to place the question on the March 7 municipal election ballot. Voters will also be asked whether the city clerk, if elected, should serve two- or four-year terms.

Regardless of the outcome, the city clerk will have a reduced role in the city government. The council has decided to make the city clerk a part-time adviser with a nominal salary instead of a full-time management employee who earns $75,000 a year.

The city clerk's position has been vacant since Carol Dorfmeyer retired in December, 1993. Her duties were taken over by Deputy Clerk Eve Thiffell.
