Local Ballot Measure
Measure NN - Requires a simple majority (More than 50% of the vote)
|Shall Ordinance No. O-2016-05 be approved to amend the City Charter to require the City Council to establish five equal, geographically based districts from which council members will be elected by residents of those districts to serve four year terms?
Placentia Charter sections 600 and 601 shall be amended to provide that commencing in
2018, City Council Members shall be elected by-district, with voters in each district only
being permitted to vote for a council member residing in that district to the City Council.
Current Council Member terms of office will not be affected. The term of office shall be
four years and council members will continue to be elected on a staggered basis. There
shall be five districts, to be determined by the City Council in any manner provided by
law. Revisions to boundaries may be made by ordinance periodically to adjust for a
change in the City boundaries and following issuance of United States census data every
10 years to maintain districts with approximately equal population. The number of
districts may not be changed without a vote of the people.
