Who has the authority to hire, discipline, and terminate an employee (e.g. is it the Mayor, Council, the Manager, or the Chief of Police?). Of course, the answer to this question depends on the type of municipality and, even then, whether it has made any type of election to go home rule, optional plan, etc. This session will focus on statutory and practical authority for employment based decisions.
