Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) -- There's a rather strange topic circulating Moorhead Council, who would call the shots if the mayor and all 8 council members suddenly died?

Moorhead's Charter Commission looked into the extremely unusual circumstance,

and found out the Governor would pick who'd run the city until a special election could be held.

The charter is recommending the council change that, to put the county commission in charge of choosing who'd lead the city.

Jim Danielson, Chair of the Charter Commission, says, "it was modeled after other proposals and other procedures that other cities similar in size to Moorhead had adopted for their procedures to deal with this issue."

If the county commission couldn't perform the task then it would go back to the governor.
