The Dexter City Council decided to postpone approving draft ballot language provided by the cities bond counsel for the November election.
This decision came after city staff’s recommendation to postpone action on the ballot language until the options and costs can be further researched.
There were six different versions of the language based on different project configurations that have been discussed thus far that were provided by the cities bond counsel. There were also three different versions of resolutions that would have authorized placing the question(s) on the ballot.
August 12 was the final chance council had to move forward with putting a bond proposal on the November ballot.
City Manager Courtney Nichols told The Sun Times council would likely approve the draft ballot language on May 12, which would be the deadline to have the proposal on the August 4, 2020 election.
