CITY OF BATAVIA: Home Rule Information
City of Batavia issued the following announcement on Sept. 6.
A petition has been filed with the City Clerk to put the following question on the November 6, 2018 ballot:
“Shall the City of Batavia cease to be a home rule unit?”
The City may not use public resources either to advocate for or against this proposition, but we want to make every effort to provide voters with factual information so that they may make an informed decision.
For that purpose, the City has created a page on its website where residents can find helpful information for education about what home rule allows and also the limits of home rule authority. The City intends to add to these educational materials on an ongoing basis and to hold meetings to respond to any questions that you may have about home rule.
