Royal Oak Voters Asked About Charter Changes on Aug. 7 Ballot

Royal Oak Voters Asked About Charter Changes on Aug. 7 Ballot

(Crystal A. Proxmire, June 30, 2018)

Royal Oak, MI –Voters in Royal Oak have two ballot proposals on the Aug. 7, 2018 primary ballot concerning the City Charter.

Here is the ballot language:

Royal Oak City 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 These sections are obsolete and superseded by state law, which contains its own provisions for the recall of any elected city officer. 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 Chapter 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 any City Commissioner to run for mayor without having to resign from the City Commission.

Shall the proposal be adopted?
