COLUMBUS, Miss. (AP) - The Columbus City Council has officially approved the creation of a public relations director position for the city.

The Commercial Dispatch reports (bit.ly/1RuGnuT) councilmen voted unanimously on the matter Tuesday evening, after a brief discussion.

Mayor Robert Smith said the concept originally arose about a year and a half ago. The council tabled it at the time because there wasn’t any room for the position in the budget. Recently, Smith said, a councilman approached him about bringing the position back to the full council for consideration.

Smith said the city will begin advertising the position. He says the city will take applications for 30 days.
