LYMAN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Lyman Town Council is considering a change to its government structure, and held a first reading of the proposal on Monday.

Members discussed the idea of giving the council more power to make decisions for the town in addition to possibly hiring a town manager.

As the council works on the suggestions, the council will take up the ordinance for more votes before it could make its way to the November ballot.

Currently, the city's government is structured in a strong mayor-council format. The council serves as a legislative branch with six members who pass ordinances, policies, the city's annual budget and appoint other town officials. The mayor acts as the chief executive officer, overseeing the daily operations of departments and carrying out the policies and ordinances enacted by the council.
