Councilman Todd Klein Proposes Organizational Changes for Administrative Staff

District 3 Lubbock City Councilman Todd Klein today released a statement concerning proposed changes he would like to see for a certain part of city staff.

Klein’s statement reads in full:

“During my tenure on the city council, I’ve come to the conclusion that there may be institutional benefits to having the administrative staff for the city council report to, and be supervised by, the office of the City Secretary, and not that of that of the City Manager’s.

I believe that the advantages of this arrangement could include better checks and balances within the organization under a City Manager/City Council form of government.

I also believe there might be additional possibilities for enhanced constituency service as well since the office of the City Secretary already provides citizen assistance regarding inquiries as well as public record and other related customer services.

It is my desire to bring this forward as early as the next regular council meeting for consideration by the new council.

More broadly, I will also ask that there be consideration given to possibly establishing term limits for council members and other possible council arrangements.”

Currently, according to the City of Lubbock Charter, the Mayor and members of the council may only discuss city staff and policy matters with the City Manager.
