For a while now, Wheatland Township officials have been talking about building a new township office building. But as word got around more and more people became opposed to this. It came to a head Monday night as registered township voters got a chance to put direct democracy in action by voting on agenda items. And they got the chance to vote down the spending for the new building.
Does this warm your political heart? Don't you wish other government was this simple? There has been talk over the years about abolishing townships, especially in built-up areas. Should we? Can you imagine a City Council or school board meeting where voters got to do something like this?
UPDATE: A special meeting tonight decides what will happen in regards to the Wheatland Township building issue.
More on this after the meeting. Voice your thoughts.
