City of Saginaw MI -
Proposal 1 & 2: City Charter Amendment to Section 21
The City of Saginaw would like to make the citizens of Saginaw aware of the proposed amendment to the Saginaw City Charter regarding City Council minutes that will appear on the November 8th ballot.
Proposal 1 would discontinue the City’s requirement to publish City Council meeting minutes in the official newspaper and would require the City Clerk’s office to have the minutes otherwise available to the public. This proposal change is designed to increase operational efficiency that would lead to cost saving each month for the City. The City currently purchases advertisement space in the official Saginaw newspaper, but this method of communication is not readily available to the public on a daily basis. By removing this action the City would save budget resources.
Proposal 2 would require that the public pay at cost for copies of the minutes from City Council meetings. Approved City Council minutes are filed in the City Clerk’s office and fall under FOIA requirements that involve the use of staff resources resulting in a processing fee. The most current City Council minutes will still be available at no cost on the City website http://www.saginaw-mi.com/.
