Council OKs placing term limit amendments on November ballot

Wednesday, August 22, 2018

YOUNGSTOWN — City council approved legislation tonight to place charter amendments on the November ballot to eliminate term limits for its members and for council president.

It also approved an anti-fracking charter amendment that’s been rejected seven previous times by city voters for the November ballot. The Mahoning County Board of Elections will meet Sept. 4 to officially place that proposal on the ballot.

Council members are required to approve the anti-fracking amendment under the city charter, said Law Director Jeff Limbian.
