Confirmation of Hires

Many comments are presently circulating about a potential change to the City of Newburgh’s Charter Section C5.05 entitled “Duties of City Manager” to provide for City Council CONFIRMATION of certain city manager appointments of the code of the City of Newburgh.  The local paper even had the required sensationalist headline of “Newburgh Power Grab…” 

To set the record straight – this has not taken place.  I’ve gotten calls regarding my vote to change the charter etc., to which I’ve answered that what was approved is the scheduling  of a public hearing to hear residents opinion on the proposed change.  This public hearing will be held April 27, 2015, during the regular scheduled council meeting which starts at 7:00pm.  I look forward to hearing from the constituents in my ward.

Below is the proposed changes for everyone to review.

LL amend Sec C5.05 Council approve CM dept head appt for 4 27 15 PH

Any questions or comments do not hesitate to reach out.  My office number is 845-569-7342.
