City ponders loss of community development director
The elimination of the community development director position was legal, according to the opinion of the city's attorney.
In a memo sent Aug. 12, City Attorney Al Felix says the Bemidji City Council "acted within its authority both to create as well as to eliminate the position."
The council voted 4-3 Aug. 10 to eliminate the position by the end of 2009 and apply the savings toward the city's general fund for 2010.
