Shall Article IX, Section 2 of the Charter of the City of Glendale be amended to provide that in the event the City Manager is incapacitated from performing the essential functions of his duties for a period up to thirty days, the Assistant City Manager shall perform such duties during such time and that on or after the thirtieth day of incapacity, the City Council may appoint an interim City Manager?

Impartial Analysis from City Attorney Scott H. Howard
The present Charter provides that in the absence, sickness or other disability of the city manager, the council may designate some other officer of the city to perform his duties. The proposed amendment allows for the assistant city manager to assume the duties of the city manager for a period of thirty days in the event the city manager is unable to perform the essential functions of his/her duties. After the thirty days, Council may appoint an interim city manager.

Arguments For Measure CharterAmendment-08
The proposed amendment allows for clarity in the order of succession in the event of the incapacity of the city manager to perform his/her duties. It further provides for the number of days after which Council may act to appoint an interim city manager, thereby avoiding any confusion if the city manager is absent for a very limited time.
