Council votes to place charter amendments on ballot

Flower Mound’s Town Council voted Monday night to include 12 of 13 Town Charter amendments on the May 12 ballot.

During a final public hearing on the proposed amendments from the town’s Charter Review Commission, a majority of council members expressed a desire to not include a recommendation that calls for a monthly stipend of $300 for the Mayor and $200 for town council members.

The remaining 12 amendments approved for voters to decide on include a three term limit for the mayor and council members, a supermajority vote to change or repeal the oil and gas drilling ordinance, and the calling of a special election to approve public-private partnerships.  See the amendments here.

Once the amendments are approved by voters, the charter can not be changed again for the next two years.
