Newton City Clerk David Olson sent this to aldermen today…
As of 9:30 am this morning, we have certified 8,374 signatures for the League of Women Voters Charter Revision Petition. This is 21 signatures more than the required 8,353. I expect the League will submit additional signatures up until Monday’s docket deadline so the grand total may be higher. The petition will be docketed with the Board of Aldermen on the July docket and referred to the Programs & Services Committee. The Board must officially place the question of forming a Charter Commission on the November municipal ballot.
