Council may drop charter issue

Published: Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at 08:18 PM.

Among those observing the proceedings was former Crestview Mayor Jerry Milligan, who had chaired the charter review committee. He said after the meeting that he had been perturbed because some of the committee’s recommendations were omitted from the proposed charter, even though some council members said the document followed the committee’s suggestions.

“The charter that was proposed was not at all what the charter committee sent to the council,” Milligan said. “That’s where I differ with it.”

He praised the council for its decision to let the matter drop.

“Maybe, we can only hope, they did indeed listen to the voice of the people in the general election,” Milligan said.

Though it voted to adjourn the workshop without action on the charter, the city council at its Dec. 10 meeting could still approve the ordinance required to place the document on the March ballot.
