Huntington Charter Changes To Be On November Ballot


  Four proposed changes to Huntington's charter will be on the November ballot.

The Herald-Dispatch reports that City Council voted this week to send the amendments to the Nov. 4 ballot.

One amendment would change the amount of time a city employee could hold a temporary position. Another would change the terminology of the public works director's qualifications.

A third amendment would change the job title of director of administration and finance to city manager. Council members say the amendment isn't a change in the form of city government.

The other amendment would require the city to maintain a garage and motor pool "system" for city vehicles. The existing language states that the city must maintain a central garage and motor pool.
