City Council On Ordinances, Codes & More

The Greenville City Council has taken action to make changes in ordinances and codes concerning positions.

The city code was amended to comply with the law concerning the appointment of the city treasurer. That appointment will be made in the future by the city manager.

The council modified the code to separate the office of city clerk and position of finance director. The same person can be both, as is currently the case with Sue Ann Nelson.

The city council also amended the code to make the director of finance a position and not an office.

City Manager Dave Willey reported he will be appointing a city treasurer in the near future. Meanwhile, Nelson remains the temporary treasurer. By law, the city clerk cannot be the permanent treasurer.
