  • Mayor Exercises Veto Power

    A city council-approved ordinance that outlines the duties and responsibilities of the mayor and city administrator / financial manager does not have the blessing of Glenwood Mayor Dyle Downing.

    On Monday, Downing issued his formal veto of Ordinance 820 “because it gives almost all the authority of the operation of the City of Glenwood to a non-elected position, which I strongly oppose.”

    The ordinance, which has been in the works since last spring, was approved by the council last month.
