City of Alameda Obsolete Language in City Charter, Measure Q (November 2008)
Measure Q revised over a dozen sections of Alameda's city charter that had included "obsolete and unclear language."
According to Alameda's city attorney, "Certain provisions of the Charter are obsolete because some of the duties stated therein have already been performed or because of changes in state law or practice. This measure would amend numerous provisions of the City of Alameda City Charter to remove these obsolete provisions, to eliminate inconsistencies, and to adopt state law provisions for certain procedural matters."
- These final election results are from the Alameda County election office.
