Shall Article IV, Section 4, Article X, Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7, and Article XX Sections 1, 2 and 3 of the Charter of the City of Glendale be amended to remove obsolete language regarding department of general government and replace with current titles, change the word "division" to "department," including "police department" and "fire department" and change the title of the division of general administration to the department of management services?

Impartial Analysis from City Attorney Scott H. Howard
The present Charter references five departments: the department of general government, the public welfare department, the public safety department, the public works department, and the public service department, and references the parts of each of these departments as divisions. The proposed amendment will amend those sections in the Charter and refer to the departments and divisions by their current titles, such as the police department and the fire department.

Arguments For Measure CharterAmendment-09
