It appears the position of city council clerk will become full-time come January.
There was some discussion after Tuesday night's city council meeting, since council passed the 2013 budget and related pay ordinances, which included full-time funding for the position, whether there was any need to act on tabled legislation that would make the position full-time.
Law Director Stuart O'Hara did additional research afterward and issued an opinion.
"Originally, the position of council clerk was full-time," O'Hara said. "When the position was changed to part-time, the full-time position was not abolished. It simply was not filled. So, it still exists," he added.
