Lewisville voters on May 1 will decide the fate of four city charter amendments. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Proposition A would add another seat to the City Council, bringing the total up to six, and would change the number of council members that must be present to constitute a quorum. The measure, if passed, is tied to the proposed annexation of the Castle Hills community later this year.

Proposition B would make the city’s budget deadlines the same as those used by the state, effectively simplifying the process.

Proposition C would make it so that members of the Lewisville Planning and Zoning Commission are no longer required to own property in Lewisville.

Proposition D would remove the council’s power to distribute duties to city staff, thereby clarifying that as a power reserved for the city manager.
