The City Council may place ballot questions on any General Election ballot. The next General Election is November 8, 2016. The following require voter approval:
All expenditures from the Capital Improvement Fund
Sales of city-owned land over 1 acre
Charter amendments (must pass at 2 consecutive elections before amendments become effective)
At its regular meeting May 12, 2016, the City Council approved Resolution No. 6483 placing a question on the 2016 General Election ballot seeking voter approval to expend funds from the Capital Improvement Fund, as they become available, to pay the debt service on the raw water line.

If you would like to be considered for a Ballot Question Committee, please contact the City Clerk's office at 293-9208, or complete the form and submit to the City Clerk's office no later than May 24, 2016.
