A draft ordinance will be presented at the council meeting Tuesday, December 11. The meeting will be at 6:30 in the City Administration Building.
Mayor Frances Hime and City Clerk-Elect Marsha Hungate have both publicly expressed their support of the ordinance. Below, are their statements.
Marsha Hungate, Facebook comment December 10, 2012 [Ms. Hungate is the City Clerk-Elect]
Tomorrow night the Council will be asked to pass an ordinance to effectively adopt the WS initiative. This is not about whether you “like” or “dislike” the Mayor. This is not even about whether you are “for” or “against” the initiative. This is about Faith. Faith the people of West Fork have in you to do what THEY have voiced they want. They turned out in great number to show their desire about this initiative. They have spoken, and have put their trust in you, with confidence, knowing you will do what they want. This is not YOUR vote. It is representative of the vote of the PEOPLE. The MAJORITY have said they want this under the control of the City Government. Tomorrow night when you’re asked yes or no…vote what the PEOPLE have entrusted you to vote. Nothing more…nothing less. If that is done…then the vote should be UNANIMOUS in passing the ordinance. We serve the people, not our own agendas. For one night, put away your own wants, and put away your dislikes of the Mayor. Vote as a unified voice of the PEOPLE. Please.
