Branson City Council to Debate New Form of Government

In half an hour Branson city leaders will debate whether or not they'll be moving to a new form of government.

Debate during last weeks city council meeting became heated as Alderman Sandra Williams brought up the idea under the premise the city of Branson would be altering city ordinaces defining what authority city council has in the hiring and firing process.

Branson's Board of Alderman has the authority to confirm or deny the appointment of the city attorney and city clerk, but the change would give them the right to terminate their employment with a vote, whether or not the city administrator thought such action was deemed necessary.
