Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore's new staff is in place.
At Monday night's city council meeting, aldermen approved all of his appointments.
Aldermen voted to wait a week, so they would have more time to consider those appointments, especially in light of the situation with the director of administrative services position last week.
Sheri Ray was unanimously approved to be the new city comptroller.
The legal team, including Lonnie Dunn as corporation counsel, Bruce Alford as assistant corporation counsel, and Ryan Schnack as the city attorney, was also approved, but with one dissenting vote.
Moore says even if it took more time, it's worth it to have everyone in place. "We want to make sure that everyone gets their questions answered, and the week allowed us to talk to the aldermen and make sure that everyone was comfortable with their new legal team - because we all have to work together. The corporation counsel isn't just the mayor's attorney, it's the attorney for the city council, so it's important that we have a good working relationship with the members of our legal team," he said.
Moore says the decision to remove a fulltime position saved the city $84,000.
