What’s the problem?
A recent study revealed widespread dysfunction and confusion within Minneapolis city government. The city has 14 bosses, with a Mayor and 13 City Council members. Lines of authority are unclear and accountability is blurred, creating a system http://binomo-co.in/binomo-copy-trading that is ineffective, inequitable, complex and costly. The Minneapolis Charter Commission’s proposed amendment will make our city government work for everyone.
A public safety charter amendment by petition from Yes 4 Minneapolis proposes removing the police department from the charter, replacing it with a Department of Public Safety that reports to 14 bosses (Mayor and 13 Council Members), and allowing law enforcement “if necessary.”
Charter for Change is part of the non-partisan alliance Minneapolis Together, a group comprised of Minneapolis residents, organizations, and businesses concerned that the city’s current path to change is reckless and divisive. Only when we see and hear each other as neighbors will we find binomo-co.in/binomo-copy-trading that common ground and Minneapolis can become a place where all may prosper.
