RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio - Richmond ..., 18 June 2014 [cached]
RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio - Richmond Heights Mayor Miesha Headen has hired at least 10 new employees in recent weeks, but council - whose approval is required by law for new hires - has consented only to one.
For a month, council has refused to vote on the new employees, many of whom are replacements for the 11 that have departed or resigned since Headen took office in December.
Headen and her supporters say they are stalling out of spite for the mayor, but council says they need legal counsel before they can approve the appointments.
May 27: Mayor Miesha Headen introduced legislation to appoint a new building commissioner, police prosecutor and service director, while Council President David Roche proposed an ordinance to rehire Walter Haverfield's legal services.
That's the same firm where the former law director and police prosecutor - who were terminated by Headen in May - are employed.
Headen said she would veto the Walter Haverfield ordinance, because it violates the charter since only a mayor can appoint a law director.
June 10: With three pending appointments before council, Headen added legislation to the agenda to hire a new law director at the regularly scheduled council meeting.
Since Headen added legislation to appoint Joseph Szeman as law director at the meeting, council said they didn't have a chance to review his qualifications.
Explanation: Council members didn't show up to the meeting because, Roche said, Headen did not follow proper protocol in calling the session.

Headen, who in January told Northeast Ohio Media Group she works at least 50 hours a week, was seeking health insurance through her position as safety director, which is also held by the mayor.
Headen called the move "petty politics like those of East Cleveland," referring to East Cleveland City Council's 2011 decision to remove Mayor Gary Norton from the position of safety director, which cut his salary in half.
Headen said Thursday she was only recently notified of the law director's opinion regarding the mayor's access to healthcare premiums paid by the city.
"I will take time to consider it carefully and thoughtfully," she wrote in an email to Northeast Ohio Media Group. "As the chief executive of the City, I certainly will comply with the law."
She said that Richmond Heights has not paid any of her healthcare premiums since she was sworn in on Dec. 1.
"The City of Richmond Heights has annual revenue of $16 million, eight departments, 11,000 residents, and approximately 60 full-time employees," she wrote. "The task of reforming this government that has suffered neglect and inattention over the past 20 years demands the undivided attention of an executive."
The mayor makes about $15,000 for each of her roles as mayor and safety director, $30,000 total.
"The position of mayor of Richmond Heights pays less than any secretary working in Richmond Heights," Headen said in January.
But Headen said her issues with the pay ordinance weren't about money and that she believed it was a personal attack.
"All mayors since at least 1995 have had access to health care premiums being paid by Richmond Heights," she said.
