He added that he did not <br />think this contemplated board should be autonomous, such as the <br />Library Board, but that Council should have jurisdiction over the <br />finances and such since it is responsible for the budget. <br />\ <br /> <br />Councilman Jacobi ~oncurred in the above and Mayor Phillips, who <br />also concurred, suggested that the City Attorney present the <br />suggested ordinance at the next Council meeting. <br /> <br />At the Council meeting of February 3, 1959 the City Manager requested <br />that effective during his leave of absence, as authorized by Resolution <br />No. 3l04, adopted at said meeting, the Council approve the appointment <br />of'Lawrence E. Cook, Assistant City Attorney, to the office of the <br />City Manager Pro Tempore. At that time the City Attorney questioned <br />whether this would be in conformance with the City Charter and <br />requested the matter be held in abeyance for 24 hours pending his <br />research and recommendation. The meeting was thereafter adjourned <br />to this date. <br /> <br />The City Attorneysuggested that a solution to the matter would be <br />for Mr. Cook to resign as Assistant to the City Attorney, which <br />appointment was made by the Council, such resignation to be <br />effective upon Council's acceptance and concurrent with Council's <br />approval of his appointment by the City Manager as City Manager Pro <br />Tempore. He added that this appointment as City Manager Pro Tempore <br />is by the Charter contingent upon his being a department head or <br />officer, and thus dependent upon his being designated as Administrative <br />Assistant. <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />2-4- 59 <br />
