Proposed charter amendment to go before Polk City voters

A proposed city charter amendment will go before voters on April 3.

Polk City commissioners voted 5-0 Monday night to let voters decide if they want a say in the future sale, lease, trade or give-away of a water or wastewater utility system.

Voters will be asked to decide whether the city should hold a special referendum, with at least 60 percent voter approval, before any transaction can be made regarding a water or wastewater utility system.

There were no public comments made following a second and final public hearing on the issue at Monday night’s regularly scheduled commission meeting. The April 3 election will be held at the Donald Bronson Community Center, 124 Bronson Trail. The charter issue is the only item on the ballot.
