Strong Mayor Task Force to Meet with Clearwater Council
The two groups plan to meet weekly to discuss replacing Clearwater’s council-manager form of government with a strong mayor form of government.
CLEARWATER – The city of Clearwater Strong Mayor Task Force and the Clearwater City Council will meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday (May 29) at the Clearwater East Community Library at St. Petersburg College, 2465 Drew St.
These meetings are to work out the details on how to replace the council-manager form of government with a strong mayor form of government and rewrite the charter. The idea was proposed by a group of local business owners. After next week, the committee will meet weekly at the Clearwater Main Library, 100 N Osceola Ave.
If approved by the Clearwater City Council, voters will have the final say, as the new plan that the task force comes up with will require changing the city charter.
The task force must submit proposed charter changes by July 19 for the City Council to review. In order to make the Supervisor of Elections’ deadline to get a question on the Nov. 6 ballot, the council would have to give first approval to the language Aug. 2 and final approval on Aug. 16.
