Superior Residents Will Vote On Referendum For Part Time Mayor
The Superior City Council voted last night to continue with a referendum on the next ballot that could change the city government. The referendum is asking voters if they would like to see a city administrator hired to run daily operations of the city, and reduce the mayor's job to a part time position.
According to our news partners WDIO, the vote will not be binding, but rather advising the council on how to move forward. Councilman Dan Olson brought the resolution forward after an advisory group suggested the city look at the option.
People came out to speak in opposition of the move, saying the residents want a full time Mayor. Current Mayor Jim Paine also opposes the government change. The Mayor from Hibbing, Rick Cannata attended the council meeting and spoke from experience as a part time mayor saying it's a good thing.
