Stonecrest holds special called meeting on proposed charter changes

Stone

At the special called meeting on Aug. 15, the Stonecrest City Council approved four of five proposed charter changes the public will consider over the next 60 days. The council opposed an ordinance amending the mayor’s salary and expense allowances for the mayor and council members. This item will not come up for the public to consider because the council voted it down.      

Citizens will be allowed to provide input on the proposals(they are only proposals) at upcoming public hearings that will be advertised. Here’s how the Stonecrest City Council voted on the proposals to be considered as amendments to the charter:

  • Unanimously passed an ordinance to amend the charter to change the titles of persons serving as Municipal Court Judges.
  • Passed 5-1 an ordinance to amend the city’s millage rate cap.
  • Opposed 4-2 an ordinance to amend the salary of the mayor and expense allowance for mayor and council members.
  • Unanimously approved an ordinance to eliminate the restriction on employment for mayor and City Council members.
  • Unanimously approved an ordinance to change the name of the City Accountant to the City Finance Director.
