Council schedules special meeting

August 13, 2010

Akron City Council will meet Monday, Aug. 16 at 6 p.m. in council chambers to decide what amendments to the city charter will be placed on the November ballot. Council has worked through its annual recess to address recommendations of the Charter Review Commission. The most controversial potential changes involve campaign finance reform and initiative and referendum procedures. Because Council has already provided public speaking opportunities on the charter change recommendations, there will no public speaking period during the special Council meeting.
