Reno City Council is holding a special meeting next Tuesday to consider granting more money toward a sexual harassment probe of embattled City Manager Andrew Clinger. 

Council has already approved $50,000 to the Vegas-based law firm Kamer Zucker and Abbott to advise the city on its investigation into Clinger's conduct.

Now Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve will ask the council to double that in addition to hiring an independent investigator, bringing the total cost to $150,000.

Reno City Council has hired a Las Vegas law firm to handle its investigation of City Manager Andrew Clinger, who's facing allegations of sexual harassment. 

Council approved a $50,000 contract Wednesday with the labor and employment firm Kamer Zucker and Abbott to advise its probe into alleged misconduct by Clinger.

That amount, however, does not include the use of a third-party investigator, who will be paid for separately by the city.

Greg Kamer, principal attorney at the firm, says hiring a separate investigator is ideal.

Reno City Manager Andrew Clinger is placing himself on voluntary leave amid a sexual harassment probe.

In an email to staff on Monday, Clinger wrote he would take leave for 15 days to ensure city business can continue without "interruption or distraction."

He appointed Assistant City Manager Bill Thomas as acting manager in his absence.

His departure comes after City Council voted last week to appoint an outside law firm to investigate allegations of misconduct filed by three female employees.
