City Council voted to make the move after amending its meeting agenda to add a resolution naming Bergstresser as acting city manager and Police Chief Chip Protsman as a successor acting city manager in case of Bergstresser’s absence.
According to Law Director Ted Hamer, the resolution is required to satisfy the paperwork requirements for a recently passed bond issue refinancing dealing with the parks and recreation facilities.
