  1  6 provisions for police protection or as otherwise provided in
  1  7 section 400.13.  However, the appointment and dismissal of the
  1  8 marshal or chief of police are subject to the consent of a
  1  9 majority of the council, and in the case of a dismissal, a
  1 10 marshal or chief of police shall be dismissed only after good
  1 11 cause has been shown.  Other officers must be selected as
  1 12 directed by the council.  The mayor is not a member of the
  1 13 council and may not vote as a member of the council.  
  1 14                           EXPLANATION
  1 15    This bill provides that the marshal or chief of police of a
  1 16 city with a mayor-council form of government and without civil
  1 17 service or an intergovernmental agreement providing another
  1 18 method of selection shall be appointed and dismissed by the
  1 19 mayor with the consent of a majority of the city council.  In
  1 20 case of a dismissal, a marshal or chief of police shall be
  1 21 dismissed only after good cause has been shown.  Under current

  1 23 government and without civil service or an intergovernmental
  1 24 agreement providing another method of selection appoints the
  1 25 marshal or chief of police without consent of the council.
