Council approves contracts for top officials

The City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday to approve eight-month contracts for the city manager, city attorney, police chief and city clerk, but those contracts give the mayor and Council the option of terminating any of those employees without penalty to the city even if there is no cause.

The contracts for City Manager Richard Trujillo, City Attorney H. Chico Gallegos, Police Chief Juan Montaño and City Clerk Casandra Fresquez all run through Dec. 31, 2016.
