Personnel changes to be seen at Tuesday's Ottumwa City Council meeting

This week's Ottumwa City Council Meeting will hold a number of different personnel changes.

A total of six different items concerning personnel matters are on the council's agenda for Tuesday night's meeting.

These positions became available due to a few retirements. No new positions are open, just movement within the ranks to be considered by the council.

Ottumwa Public Information Officer Tom Rodgers said these types of changes are fairly common among civil service positions.

"With civil service positions, very often when somebody moves into a different position there's kind of a ripple effect," said Rodgers. "Because one vacancy then causes a number of different positions to move through."

Another item on the agenda is a routine approval of the annual Ottumwa Water and Hydro budget for the upcoming 2014 fiscal year.

That budget is currently set at $9.6 million.
