Neighborhood Commission rejects proposal to postpone elections

The city Neighborhood Commission rejected a proposal tonight to postpone board elections for two years and save $210,000 to help balance the city’s budget.

Neighborhood board election ballots are scheduled to be mailed out next month with new terms starting July 1. That means candidates must turn in their forms to enter the election by tomorrow. 

The commission came up with the idea as a way to save money. Commissioners said they are authorized to take such action because of a rules change in January.
