Charter workshop heats up in Bronson

-A A +A
By Mark Scohier, Staff writer

A Bronson workshop Monday evening erupted into pandemonium after the discussion turned toward the subjects of early voting and residency requirements of town council members.
"He's just runnin' his mouth is what he's doin'," was the comment from Mayor Franklin Schuler about Council Member Berlon Weeks after a debate among council members about the two issues.
Monday night was the third workshop the council has had in recent weeks to discuss how to address the town's outdated charter. Staff and officials have been tackling several sections at a time in these meetings, with little debate on how the new charter would read, until Monday night, that is.
Loud disagreements began after a discussion on the use of the term "free citizen," which was part of the wording used for a proposed amendment for early voting expected to be addressed in a special election later this year.
Town Attorney Steven Warm said he didn't understand the reason for the particular verbiage, though he admitted it may have to be written that way on the ballot.
"The answer is: I really don't know," Warm said.
