Batavia to debate eliminating assistant city manager

BATAVIA – The City Council is prepared to consider a proposal by Councilman John Deleo to amend the 2015-16 general budget by eliminating the assistant city manager position.

Deleo, speaking at Monday night’s budget public hearing on the city’s budget, asked what would be the best way to introduce his amendment.

After debating whether to schedule a special meeting, the Council decided to wait to discuss the matter – and possibly vote on the amendment – at its next regular business meeting on March 9.

The Council hired Gretchen L. DiFante as the assistant county manager last June at a salary of $75,905.

The Council is facing an April 1 deadline to pass the budget.
