YAKIMA, Wash. -- Changes are planned for the way Yakima is run. The new city manager just submitted a plan for reorganization.
Tony O'Rourke proposes eight key changes. They're all aimed at making Yakima more efficient and financially stable.
The changes include bringing back a fire inspector and creating a new position to focus on the execution of city plans.
Council members will make a decision on the proposal tomorrow.
"They are pretty straight forward and simple. We didn't expect them to be complex or difficult, but it's a starting step there will be more steps in the future," said Yakima City Manager Tony O'Rourke.
O'Rourke said he has no plans to lay off any Yakima city workers.
