The Voices of Cutler Bay recommend APPROVAL of most of the amendments to the Charter of Cutler Bay. The exceptions are:
While there is no formal procedure for Council recognitions, this amendment adds unnecessary complexity, opens the door for unseemly public debate about private citizens eligibility, and infringes on the mayor’s duty to represent the Town for ceremonial purposes. It also creates the need for additional meetings and wastes taxpayers money staffing those meetings.
Please Vote NO by selecting # 269
“Citizen” advisory boards, agencies, and committees should consist of citizens. Non-voting members would create unnecessary complexity and distraction to the already difficult tasks of deliberation and consent. Boards, agencies, and committees already have the ability to request input and/or advice from non-residents, if they so desire.
Please Vote NO by selecting # 285.
Restriction on Consecutive Service on a Charter Revision Commission as a Voting Member
Why limit the Council in choosing whom they feel can provide a meaningful service to the Town? The charter review commission meets every 6 years and there is a small pool of residents willing to serve the long hours required for this commission.
Please Vote NO by selecting #289.
