City of Cortland officials are looking to take the next steps in officially eliminating the finance director position and creating the position of city manager.

But first, the Common Council at Tuesday’s meeting will have to approve a public hearing for “proposed local law relating to changing the city charter to create the position of city manager,” according to the agenda.

If approved, the public hearing will be held at the Common Council’s next meeting at 6 p.m. Oct. 6.

A description of the proposed city manager position can be seen here on pages 5-6 of supporting documents from the Common Council’s Aug. 2 meeting.
