McKinney charter propositions


Charter amendments

Proposition F: Shall Section 145 of the City Charter be amended to provide for a reduction in the required petition signatures needed to initiate a recall election?

  • Proposed language: “Sec. 145. - Recall petitions
    The recall petition to be effective must be returned and filed with the City Secretary within forty-five (45) days after the filing of the affidavit required for initiative and referendum petitions, and it must be signed by qualified voters residing in any district, irrespective of the seat subject of the recall petition, of the City equal in number to at least thirty (30) percent of the total number of votes cast at the last regular municipal election; provided, however, that the petition shall contain the signatures of at least one thousand (1,000) of the qualified voters of the City and shall conform to the provisions of initiative and referendum petitions. No petition papers shall be accepted as part of petition unless it bears the signature of the City Secretary as required in initiative and referendum petitions.”


Proposition G: Shall Section 146 of the City Charter be amended to clarify that recall elections are city wide?

  • Proposed language: “Sec. 146. - Recall election
    The City Secretary shall at once examine the recall petition and, if the City Secretary finds it sufficient and in compliance with the provisions of this Chapter of the Charter, the City Secretary shall within five (5) days or at the next regular City Council meeting, whichever is later, submit it to the City Council with its office’s certificate to that effect and notify the officer sought to be recalled of such action.
    If the officer whose removal is sought does not resign within five (5) days after such notice, the City Council shall thereupon order and fix a date for holding a citywide recall election according to State law.”
