Voters in Ypsilanti approved all but one of the proposed charter amendments on Tuesday's ballot.


Voters rejected a proposal to give city council the power to have ordinances take immediate effect with a two-thirds majority vote (Proposal E).   Nine other charter amendments passed.

One Ypsilanti city council member thinks it would be wise for the city to be ready to add some charter amendment issues to the ballot in the event the state puts a road construction funding issue up for a vote. 

Council member Pete Murdock has four charter amendments in mind, most of which have been previously recommended by the city’s Charter Commission.
