The seventh proposition that will appear on the May ballot is: 

Proposition G

An amendment to the City Charter amending the residency requirement for the Judge of the Municipal Court.

The wording of this proposition as it was presented at previous public hearings: 

Measure B

An amendment to the City Charter amending the residency requirement for the Judge of the Municipal Court.

There is no change in either the wording of the proposition nor the number of charter sections it seeks to change. 

This proposition’s earlier review:   

Proposition Number Two (#2)

 

An amendment to the City Charter amending the residency requirement for the Judge of the Municipal Court.

 

If citizens vote “yes” on this proposition, only one section of the charter will be affected.  The section will be revised to say: 

 

Section 6.02    Judge of the Municipal Court

 

The Municipal Court shall be presided over by a magistrate who shall be known as the City Judge.  The City Judge shall be a resident of Coleman County, shall be appointed by the Council, and shall serve at the pleasure of the City Council.  The City Judge shall receive such compensation as may be set by the Council.  In addition, the City Council shall appoint an Alternate City Judge who shall be a resident of Coleman County and who shall also receive such compensation as may be set by the Council.  In the event the City Judge is unable to act for any reason, or in the event of a vacancy, the Alternate City Judge shall act in the place of the City Judge until such vacancy can be filled.  The term of office of the City Judge and Alternate City Judge shall be concurrent with the term of the Mayor. 

 

In the current charter, the section now reads: 

 

Section 6.02     Judge of the Municipal Court.

 

The Municipal Court shall be presided over by a magistrate who shall be known as the City Judge. The City Judge shall be a resident of the City of Coleman, shall be appointed by the Council, and shall serve at the pleasure of the City Council. The City Judge shall receive such compensation as may be set by the Council. In addition, the City Council shall appoint an Alternate City Judge who shall be a resident of the City of Coleman and who shall also receive such compensation as may be set by the Council. In the event the City Judge is unable to act for any reason, or in the event of a vacancy, the Alternate City Judge shall act in the place of the City Judge until such vacancy can be filled. The term of office of the City Judge and Alternate City Judge shall be concurrent with the term of the Mayor.
