Dearborn Heights Ballot Proposal on Charter Amendment
CITY OF DEARBORN HEIGHTS CHARTER AMENDMENT OF SECTIONS 6.11, 6.12, 10.10, 13.2 and 13.4.
The purpose of this amendment to Dearborn Heights City Charter Sections 6.11, 6.12, 10.10, 13.2, and 13.4 is to permit any requirement of publishing or publication under the Charter or the City’s ordinances to be satisfied by publishing the item in a newspaper of general circulation in the City, or by posting the item to the City’s website, or by both publishing the item in a newspaper of general circulation in the City and posting the item to the City’s website.
Shall the amendment, as proposed, be adopted?
A YES vote would allow flexibility for the City to choose which media would best fulfill publishing provisions in the City Charter: either by publishing in a newspaper (currently the Press & Guide) or by posting on the City’s website (not currently being done) or by both.
A NO vote would require the City to continue its current practice of publishing in a newspaper as mandated by the City Charter.
