Charter Countdown



"You have to do the job of informing people of what's in it and let them make the decision. I hope people pay attention in November [2014]."


When it goes before the voters, will cityhood pass? "It will," Keough says confidently. "There'll be enough people in the community who've thought about it and understand the benefits."

Hansen and Kowalski agree with Keough, but Donaldson says he's "not sure it'll be approved. The sentiment up until the election was in favor by a majority, but that could change as we get further along in discussions."

"If it was just a one-time election, I'd say the odds are fifty-fifty," says Smith. "But if it fails the first time, they can take the charter back and change it and put it up again, so in the long term the odds are in their favor."

What happens if Dexter does decide to stay a village? "Nothing changes," says Keough with a sigh. "As far as the government part of it, it would stay the same as it is," agrees Smith happily.
