Residency Requirement for Department Heads Now the Rule in Manitowoc
Link to Herald-Times-Reporter article, "Council overrides Nickles' veto".
Excerpt: Overriding a mayoral veto by the minimum required votes, the City Council on Monday night imposed a controversial residency requirement on future hires for the city's 14 department head positions.
Under the terms of the new ordinance, department heads in city hall will be required to live within the boundaries of Manitowoc, a mandate proponents say will instill a sense of loyalty and community involvement in the employees who essentially run the city.
