The role of the city’s longtime city clerk and chief financial officer is the topic of an executive session discussion set for Thursday at city hall.

According to an agenda posted late Tuesday, council members will meet in open session to consider enacting ordinances pertaining to the positions currently held by Charles Tomlin.

Drafts of the proposed ordinance changes were not available as of today.

The council will also discuss the proposed hiring of Crawford and Associates — an Oklahoma City based accounting firm that offers a number of services including financial statement preparation, fraud investigations and internal control analysis.

The council will enter into executive session to discuss the “employment, hiring, appointment, promotion, demotion, disciplining or resignation of” Tomlin.

The executive session will also include discussion of an unspecified pending investigation, claim or action.

City manager Huey Long said today that he could not comment on personnel matters but did confirm that Tomlin has not submitted a resignation.

Tomlin is out of the office this week and could not be reached for comment.

Tomlin was appointed to the position of utility comptroller by the Miami Public Utilities Board in April 1979. He served in that capacity until being appointed as the city’s chief financial officer in July 1986.
