Moving toward a new form of government in Saratoga Springs: Meeting April 8

Saratoga Springs is a great city despite its form of government. But that doesn't mean the form of government shouldn't change. Now, the city has the archaic commission government, one in which no one is in charge and City Council members are both legislators and administrators. A group of citizens is poised to place on the November ballot a referendum to change that to a council/manager form.
What does that mean?
We'll be publishing a lot about this in the weeks and months ahead. Meanwhile, I encourage you to stop by the Saratoga Springs Public Library at 7 p.m. Thursday (April 8) to learn and ask questions about the movement that is afoot to place this change on the ballot.
Questions?
The saratogacitizen.com Web site is still under construction, but it does address a number of frequently asked questions and offers more contact information.
