BRAC Seeks Input From Battle Creek On Potential Government Changes
A group tasked with reviewing Battle Creek’s city charter is now asking for public input.
The 18-member Blue Ribbon Advisory Committee is looking at many potential changes to Battle Creek’s government, including changing how large the City Commission is and changing how the Mayor and Vice Mayor are elected. Other topics being discussed by the committee include the length of Commissioner terms, and gendered language in the city's charter.
A new online survey has a few questions related to these topics and more. You don't need to be a city resident to fill it out, as they are still seeking input from those in neighboring municipalities and those who are former residents of Battle Creek.
To take the survey, follow this SurveyMonkey link, or go to the City of Battle Creek's website and scroll down to the "City Spotlight" section; you can also fill out a printed version of the survey, distributed with Battle Creek’s May water bills.
