Aliquippa voters to decide on creating home rule charter commission

ALIQUIPPA – As the city continues to work on its Act 47 exit plan, residents will get to decide whether or not a new form of government should be studied.

During its most recent meeting, Aliquippa Council passed an ordinance that asks the Beaver County Bureau of Elections to place a question on the ballot during the upcoming Nov. 8 election.

That question will read: “Shall a government study commission of seven members be elected to study the existing form of government of the municipality, to consider the advisability of the adoption of a home rule charter and, if advisable, to draft and to recommend a home rule charter. “

At the same time, residents will get to vote for seven members of the commission, should the measure pass on the ballot.
