RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The city attorney is weighing in on the balance of powers at Richmond City Hall.

Norman Sales says the Mayor Dwight C. Jones administration's shuffling of several key city departments is not legal without city council approval.

The mayor's press secretary says this appears to be a disagreement over timing, but that the chief administrative officer is eventually planning to bring this issue before council for a vote.
