Metro Charter Amendments Added to Ballot

Five amendments to the Metro Nashville Charter will be presented to voters on this fall’s ballot, the Tennessean reports. One of the most substantial amendments would clarify the Davidson County sheriff’s role, estimated by Metro to save the county about $4 million year. The other questions before voters include allowing government employees to work as part-time poll workers; reducing the educational requirements for metro Public Works director; renaming the school crossing guard division; and clarifying the Metro stormwater functions.
