Lane County Charter Amendments, 3 (November 2010)
All three measures were approved
The first amendment sought to amend section 19 of the charter and would allow the County to determine which departments would exist to provide services, currently the charter dictates which departments provide which services.
The second amendment sought to amend section 21 of the charter which would allow the County Commissioners to delegate authority to the County Administrator to make changes to the county administrative structure.
The third amendment sought to amend section 22 in regards to clarifying confusing language in the section.
- YES 93,224 (75.92%)
- NO 29,564 (24.08%)
The county board noted that the goal of these measures was to allow the government greater ease to reorganize departments in an effort to cut costs. Though they noted no services would be effected and there is not a direct link to cost savings if there is reorganization, they hoped to be able to better allocate those services with the budget they have available.
