A shorthanded Bellevue City Council Monday night rejected a four-year contract with Bellevue firefighters and ordered City Administrator Joe Mangiamelli back to the negotiating table. Councilmen Paul Cook, Pat Shannon and Jim Moudry gave thumbs down to a contract that awards annual pay increases to firefighters and guarantees the promotion of 10 firefighters to the rank of captain over the next four years. Council member Thomas Burns was the lone vote in favor of the contract, with council members Don Preister and John Hansen both absent. Mangiamelli, visibly frustrated over the rejection of a contract that had been months in the making, asked the council for direction.
