Previously rejected charter amendment will be on ballot

Thu, Sep 3 2009 — Source: Twinsburg Bulletin

A proposed charter amendment originally rejected by Council will end up on the November ballot after all, after one significant change was made to it. If approved by voters, the amendment would allow the Charter Review Commission to forward any proposed charter amendment to the ballot, unless it is rejected by five or more Councilors. Council voted 7-0 Aug. 25 to place the revised amendment on the Nov. 3 ballot. Council initially rejected a similar charter amendment 3-4 Aug. 12. At that time, the proposal did not allow Council to reject amendments with even a super majority vote.
