Charter revisions were approved and a resolution authorized Monday at a special-called meeting for the continuation of the charter adoption process.
Having not been updated since 1983, the city charter will be changed to reflect current operations and correct language. Included in revisions will be formal adoption of a city manager-style government as has been utilized in Adairsville for some time.
"They've been discussing the charter so they got that language finalized and had to adopt a resolution in order to get it submitted in order that [State] Representative [Christian] Coomer can submit it," said Pat Crook, Adairsville city manager.
Revisions to city charters must pass through legislation and be approved by both House and Senate.
Also approved Monday was the appointment of Clerk of Court Wanda McCollum to the position of deputy city clerk. McCollum will be filling the vacancy of former City Clerk Frieda Lance after her retirement last month.
"During this clerk vacancy we appointed a deputy city clerk so that we have someone to attest to documents and that kind of thing and it's always good to have a backup anyway," Crook said.
The position will be advertised internally before being publicly advertised if it remains unfilled.
