Grantri 2 years, 10 months ago on Snellville's new mayor, council members take oaths

I would seem that Kaut'z appointment of Sabbaugh as Mayor Pro Tem is outside her authority per the Municipal Code of the City of Snellville . The position of Mayor Pro Tem is to be filled by a majority vote of the City Council NOT by mayoral appointment From the Code. "Section 2.28. - Mayor pro tempore.

By a majority vote, the city council shall elect a council member to serve as mayor pro tempore. The mayor pro tempore shall assume the duties and powers of the mayor during the mayor's disability or absence. Any such disability or absence shall be declared by a majority vote of the city council. The mayor pro tempore shall sign all contracts and ordinances in which the mayor has a disqualifying financial interest as provided in section 2.14 of this Charter. "

Not sure what code Kautz or the newly appointed City attourney were citing but it would seem that there isnt any room for interpretation here . Unless the City Code is more like Pirate Code and is nothing more than rough guidelines to be ignored at a whim..Guessing NOT!
