Strong Mayor Conversations Scheduled For February
Originally, the proponents of a citywide vote on the Strong Mayor proposal were hoping for that vote to happen in this February's Special Election. That's not going to happen but what is coming in February are a couple of opportunities to learn more about the matter.
At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, council members added a discussion of the Strong Mayor form of government to its February 4th meeting agenda.
In addition to that, the Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce's February 19, 2020 luncheon meeting will be dedicated to a comparative conversation about the City Manager and the Strong Mayor forms of government. Guest speakers Bruce Smith and Nick Marquez will discuss the pros and cons of the systems and implications of a change.
