THE CITY OF REDWOOD
The Office of Chairman DOJODOG_2004
A Charter Amendment to Fix “A Charter Amendment to Establish Provisions for Employee Rights”
PreambleWHEREAS, Chairman DOJODOG_2004 made a mistake on "A Charter Amendment to Establish Provisions for Employee Rights" resulting in a portion of Article III, Section 12 of the Redwood City Charter being unintentionally removed: Now, therefore, be it
Enacted by the City of Redwood City Council that:
Section 1The Redwood City Charter (“the City Charter”) shall be defined through its Trello card.
- Article III, Section 12 of the City Charter currently states: "The Mayor shall additionally hold the ability to dismiss and/or terminate those individuals who are a part of an executive office or multiple executive offices within the City’s Executive Branch. This ability can be limited through legislation."
- Article III, Section 12 of the City Charter shall be amended to state: "The Mayor shall hold the ability to nominate and/or appoint individuals to the executive offices within the Executive Branch of the City, which shall be established through appropriate legislation. The Mayor may at any time retract a nomination, except for when such a nomination has already been voted on by the City Council or is being voted on by the City Council. Legislation that establishes (one of these) offices shall specify whether a nomination or appointment is necessary for an individual to hold the positions within that office or those offices. Positions that require a nomination by the Mayor shall need to be confirmed by the City Council through a simple-majority vote as established in Article IV, Section 6. Nominations shall require an announcement be made accessible to the City Council and citizens of the State of Firestone no less than twenty-four (24) hours before the council votes on said nomination. Appointments do not need additional confirmations, apart from a decision and/or statement by the Mayor. The Mayor shall additionally hold the ability to dismiss and/or terminate those individuals who are a part of an executive office or multiple executive offices within the City’s Executive Branch. This ability can be limited through legislation. Employees of the Executive Branch may also be impeached or expelled by the City Council through the process(es) defined in Article V of this Charter."
Section 3This legislation shall go into effect immediately upon passing the legal processes as described by the City Charter.
Respectfully submitted to the City of Redwood City Council,
