Margate Community Awareness started this petition to Residents of Margate, Florida and

We would like to return the balance of power back and return fiscal responsibility as it was originally set up in the City of Margate by making the following adjustments to the city charter:

The question before the residents of Margate is as follows -

1.) Shall the following named positions, Assist City Manager, Chief of Police, Chief of the Fire Rescue Department be removed from the list of positions that the City Commissioners have reserved the right to be able to appoint, suspend or fire them without the consent or permission of the City Manager thereby restoring the City Charter back to it's original format.

2.) Shall the following provision be added to the City Charter that if a Commissioner desires family health coverage then that Commissioner alone  shall be responsible for any additional cost for the family coverage and this will never be an included part of the Commissioner benefit package from this day forward.

3.) Shall the following provision be added to the City Charter that any raise in salary request for the Commissioners that is greater than 1/2% above the cost of living (COLA) raise granted to any city employee must be voted on and approved by the qualified electors of the City of Margate before being granted.
