Possible Municipal Primary Election Date Change and the Romig Road Redevelopment Plan

July 24, 2018

Last night, the Akron City Council decided to take additional time to discuss the proposed ordinance authorizing the amending to Section 4 of the Charter of the City of Akron to establish a May primary election date for municipal elections in the City of Akron to uphold the voting rights of military service members and to reduce the cost of the primary election. If this amendment passes, it will be placed on the November 6, 2018 ballot. Also, the ordinance approving the Romig Road Redevelopment Plan was placed on the Consent Agenda to pass during the July 30, 2018 meeting.
