In Rawlins, after learning that the city manager has been working no less than 60 hours a week for the last 15 months, several city councilors are pushing for the creation of a new position that would serve as an assistant to the manager.

The vice mayor called it “unacceptable” to treat employees like work horses and, along with two other councilors suggested the money previously budgeted to pay a deputy city attorney be reallocated for the new position.

Other councilors, including the mayor, say they’re firmly against the position because the city has not yet received the audits for the last and current fiscal years. Cali O’Hare reports.
