Future of City Commission in Voters’ Hands

Whether the City of Shelton will continue as the only City Commission in the State of Washington is now in the hands of voters. During a special meeting Wednesday, the City Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution that submits the question to city voters on November 7th. Voters will be asked to decide whether or not the City of Shelton should adopt a seven member Council/Manager form of government, and abandon the City’s current three member Commission leadership structure.

Wednesday’s action comes in response to a citizen petition that was submitted to the Mason County Auditor’s Office earlier this week.There were over 220 signatures on that petition which surpassed the state regulated signature requirement (ten percent of the votes cast at the last general municipal election.) On Tuesday, Mason County Auditor Karen Herr certified that 157 of those signatures were verified registered city voters, allowing the ballot measure to placed on the General Election Ballot.

So, supporters of the concept decided to gather the necessary signatures on a petition to get the question before voters on November 7th. They needed signatures from 10 percent of the voter turnout from the last municipal election or 157.
