Editorial: City manager worth studying

(Continued)

Staggering terms so only three seats are up for election at a time would ensure that at least some experienced council members would return.

The Clinton County Legislature, with voter approval, opted to stagger terms for its 10 legislators starting with the 2011 election, in a move that so far appears to be working well.

We urge Mayor Kasprzak to appoint a City Charter Commission to explore the concept of a city manager. It would not cost the city money and it doesn’t obligate any change, but the timing is right to study that option.
