The Dover City Council has decided it wants to give its mayor less power not more.
Two weeks ago the council had decided to give the Mayor more authority.
But during last night’s meeting the council president David Bonar said the panel was just trying to fix a mistake it made two weeks ago.
It had voted 5-to-2 to have most of the city departments report directly to the city manager who would in turn the mayor.
But last night the council voted to have the city manager report to the city council with most departments reporting to the city council.
