Bradenton city clerk's duties expanded, but not his pay

BRADENTON — The City Council unanimously approved today a change in the job description and title for City Clerk Carl Callahan.

Callahan, whose duties as city clerk and treasurer remain the same, will now be responsible for overseeing all other city departments as chief of staff.

Councilwoman Marianne Barnebey said she wanted to make it clear to the public that these extra duties do not come with an increase in pay or extra staff for Callahan, as some of her constituents had questioned.

Councilman Gene Gallo said last week he wanted the changes because with reduced revenues and tightened budget, the city needed one person to make sure spending was under control in each department.

For a previous Bradenton Herald story on this proposal, read "Bradenton city clerk may get more power."
