Columbus residents discuss restructuring the city's government

Updated:
Columbus, KS residents met on Wednesday to hear a proposal on changing the government in their city.

Right now, Columbus has a mayor council form of government.

City officials say a survey showed a trend of residents wanting to change to a city manager form of government - where there are 4 commissioners, but significant administrative powers are given to the city manager.

Trish Carroll, head of the Columbus Vision Committee says hiring a city manager could cost $65,000 to $75,000 per year.

Residents will get a chance to vote on the change April 1st. If approved, a city manager form of government would go into effect in April of 2015.

Questions or concerns should be directed to the city clerk at (620) 429-2159
