GREENFIELD — A new position could be carved into the 2013 city budget, placing the supervision of Greenfield’s three utilities on the shoulders of Mike Fruth.

Fruth, the city’s engineer, would become utility manager under a proposal written by Mayor Dick Pasco. Greenfield’s assistant engineer, Karla Vincent, would be promoted to city engineer.

The proposal is just one piece of what is expected to be a lengthy discussion of salaries, raises, fire protection, building projects and more today.

The Greenfield City Council will meet at 6 p.m. today in a budget workshop. Historically, the council meets two or three times before holding a public hearing and giving final approval. But tonight, 11 departments are scheduled to speak about their wish-list expenses; if the council does not get through all the departments today, it will meet again at 6 p.m. Friday.
