Two proposals will be on the Aug. 7, 2018 ballot to amend the City Charter.
Charter Amendment – Acknowledge State Law Concerning Recall of an Elected Officer
Sections 29 through 39 of Chapter 4 of the City of Royal Oak charter provide for the recall of any elected officer of the city. These sections are obsolete and superseded by state law, which contains its own provisions for the recall of any elected city officers. This proposal would replace language from the city charter making it clear that state laws apply.
Shall this proposal acknowledging the application of current law be adopted?
Charter Amendment – Allow Any Current City Commissioner to Run for Mayor
Proposal to Delete a Portion of Section 3 at Charter 3 of the City of Royal Oak Charter to Allow Any City Commissioner to Run for Mayor
This proposal, if adopted would delete the second paragraph of Section 3 at Chapter 3 and would allow City Commissioner to run for mayor without having to resign from the City Commission.
Shall the proposal be adopted?
