The Redondo Beach City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night during closed session to authorize the city attorney to research and recommend an outside investigator to look into complaints about City Manager Bill Workman.
Mayor Steve Aspel announced the vote when the council reconvened in chambers.
Workman concurred with the council's action, according to City Attorney Mike Webb.
Webb will come back in two weeks with the recommendation for an outside investigator, according to Aspel. Though the council and city manager desire an expedited investigation, Aspel, Councilman Steve Sammarco and Workman will all be absent from next week's council meeting.
This is a developing story.
