Urbana Mayoral Appointment Proposal Halted

URBANA--A proposal by two Urbana city council members to change mayoral appointments in the city never made it to council.
    Monday night, council members Eric Jakobsson and Diane Marlin intended on proposing their plan to the council, but were stopped by the city's attorney.
    He told them their proposal could hurt the city's case where a former employee is suing the city after not being re-appointed.
    The council members proposing the changes say they are not focusing on any specific case..

"We're not focusing on specific personnel issues and we can't. So we're looking to the future and not to the past. And we're looking at general policies and we always think there's room for improvement. Once in a while you have to review what you're doing and I think it's overdue and I think that's the focus that we're taking." said Marlin.
