Eudora voters approve change in city government structure

November 6, 2012


Voters in Eudora easily approved a change in its form of city government on Tuesday.

Eudora residents approved by 66.81 percent to 33.19 percent a provision that will switch Eudora’s city government from a mayor/city council form of government to a city manager/city commissioner form of government.

The change means voters no longer will directly elect a mayor who has the power to appoint department heads in the city. Instead, city commissioners will elect one of their own members to serve as mayor. Department heads will be appointed by the city manager/administrator.

A total of 1,546 Eudora residents voted for the change, while 768 voted against the measure.
