Parker said Clancy hasn’t decided whether she will take legal action. He questioned whether Burt could abolish the position of public works director when the department and position are created by city ordinance, and the action was taken without the council knowing about it.

Harris said the council will meet in executive session Thursday “to evaluate the performance of the city manager to make sure [this] was done correctly. We will get some advice from our attorney and outside counsel … and have findings when we’re done to see if this was done appropriately under state law.”

Burt has told the council he will retire in November 2015.
