The Arlington County Civic Federation is initiating a series of public meetings to inform citizens about the work of its Task Force in Governance and Election Reform (“TiGER), which is considering whether the Civic Federation should be recommending changes in Arlington’s 90-year-old form of government.
First meeting is Monday the 17th at 7 p.m., and is about the Fort Worth experience in switching from at-large to district election of its City Council members forty years ago and onward to the present. The second is Monday, May 24 at 7 p.m., will discuss the reform initiatives from the Portland City Club assessing form of government there. The URL of the TiGER Corner in the CivFed website is: http://www.civfed.org/committees/tiger/ this is where the access addresses for these meetings will be posted. Other information about the work of the TiGER, and access information for TiGER’s subsequent meetings, will be posted there as well.
