Three Lane County Charter Amendment measures were on the November 2, 2010 ballot in Lane County.

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.

  • YES 81,814 (67.42%)Approveda
  • NO 39,528 (32.58%)

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.

  • YES 79,643 (65.48%)Approveda
  • NO 41,994 (34.52%)

The third amendment sought to amend section 22 in regards to clarifying confusing language in the section.[1]

  • YES 93,224 (75.92%)Approveda
  • NO 29,564 (24.08%)[2]

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.[3]
