Freeport, Illinois – October 6, 2016 –The Committee to Change City Government will host a series of educational events and presentations throughout the community to share information about the managerial form of government.
A referendum on the ballot November 8 would change Freeport’s form of municipal government to the Managerial (Council-Manager) form of municipal government. If you would like to learn more about the local election and see the ballot see this article.
The Managerial form of government features the combination of an elected Council and Mayor to set our course through long-term planning; with a trained, professional City Manager to lead the day-to-day operations of the city.
A list of the upcoming presentations and events are below.
