Charter Change Ordinance Available for Download
At Thursday’s 7 p.m. meeting, council takes up the charter-change ordinance for final reading. Council can only approve charter changes against which no objections were entered by the end of the Nov. 9 public hearing.
Click here and look for the “Nov. 18 Update” heading, where you can download a PDF of the ordinance that council will be looking at on Thursday.
Objected-to language is struck out, with replacement language (if any) in bold type. As a result of the major unresolved objections, this ordinance would retain the current form of city government (i.e., Mayor-Council, not Manager-Mayor) and ward-based election of council members.
The period for submitting objections has closed. Remaining objections may be retracted by the original objector at any point until the vote on the ordinance at Thursday’s meeting.
