Kenai City Council Editing Gender References in Charter

The Kenai City Council will tonight consider changing gender-specific terms in the city charter. Mayor Pat Porter brought up some potential changes to the charter at the last city meeting…


Mayor Porter: “It’s almost 50 years old and a lot of things have changed in there. As a matter of fact, at the next Council meeting, we’re probably going to be looking at the way genders are addressed in our charter, and most likely that’ll be before the voters as well. “


Since the charter is effectively the constitution for the city, all changes will go before the voters this October. At the last meeting of the Council, members decided to approve two changes for voters to consider, removing the Mayor’s ability to pardon violations of the City Charter and removing the City’s regulation of milk and milk products.
