2016 Ballot Issues

Written by

Advisory Elections

An Advisory Election is a ballot measure in which citizens vote on a non-binding question. The approval of the ballot measure does not result in new, changed, or rejected law.   

Chickens in Residential Areas 

Currently, chickens are not allowed on residential lots that are less than one acre, with the exception of R-1 and R-2 zoned lots. The Huber Heights City Council has chosen to conduct an Advisory Election in November for consideration for the decision process to allow for a maximum of 4 hens on residential lots. If the Advisory Election shows residents are in favor of a change to the current ordinances, the normal decision and approval process will be conducted and authorized by City Council. That process includes submission to the Planning Commission and final review and approval by City Council. The proposed changes incorporate provisions requiring the chickens to be kept in a pen or coop in the rear yard; that all
pens or coops shall be a minimum of 10 feet from the property lines; shall be constructed of sturdy wire fencing, solid wood, composite or vinyl material; and have covering to prevent predators from access. The pens and coops would also be required to be kept clean, dry, free of odor and free of accumulated manure. Chickens shall not be butchered or processed within public view. A permit will be required from the Zoning Department for the pen or coop. A vote of yes would be a recommendation to City Council to allow this change. A vote of no would be a recommendation to not make any changes to the current Code.

Water Softening 

The City of Huber Heights is conducting an Advisory Election to help in the process of deciding whether to provide softened
water to the entire Huber Heights community by adding a membrane filtering system to the existing water treatment plant located on Rip Rap Road. The cost to upgrade the plant has been estimated to be $12,630,000. If the outcome of the November Advisory Election shows that the citizens are in favor of this project, the process of City Council review and authorization will begin. This will include obtaining proposals from qualified consulting engineers and staff recommendations, all of which will be approved by City Council. Once the decision process is complete and if it is approved by City Council, the engineer will then design the plant upgrades within a 6- to 9-month period and construction at the plant will begin. In addition to approval of the project, the cost of it will be reviewed and considered in regard to how it may affect the water rates.  In other words, a rate increase will likely be discussed and considered to fund this improvement to the water utility.  Construction will take approximately one year before the softened water would be available to the community. If the project is approved, it is estimated that Huber Heights water will be softened to a level of 120 to 130 mg/l, which is slightly lower than the water softened by other cities in the area.

City Charter Amendments

Dear Huber Heights Voter:

Voters will be asked to consider a lot of issues in the upcoming election.  It is difficult to have all the information you need to make an informed decision.  The City of Huber Heights has six ballot issues for eight City Charter amendments for voters to consider this November.  Simply put, a City Charter is somewhat like a constitution; it establishes a form of government and creates basic rules about how the government should operate.  Huber Heights’ City Charter had not been reviewed until 2016 nor has it been amended since it became effective in 1984.  This year, the City Council appointed nine interested voters to serve on a Charter Review Commission to review the City Charter and recommend any changes needed to City Council.  The Charter Review Commission unanimously approved and recommended to City Council the following City Charter amendments.  The Huber Heights Charter Review Commission provided several recommended changes to be considered for amendments to the City Charter.  These recommended changes have been approved by the Huber Heights City Council to be placed on the November 8, 2016 for approval by the electorate.

As background, the Huber Heights City Council appointed a Charter Review Commission in 2016 to conduct a full and comprehensive review of the City Charter.  During this review process, the Charter Review Commission considered suggestions made by residents of Huber Heights, commission members, the Law Director, City Staff, City Council, and also referenced the City Charters of over at least 20 area cities.  Following months of extensive research, review, and discussion, the Charter Review Commission provided very detailed recommendations for amendments to the City Charter.  These recommendations updated and clarified language in the City Charter and provided for the improvement of City operations in practices and processes.  Before placing the proposed City Charter amendments on the November ballot by a unanimous vote, City Council carefully considered the recommendations made by the Charter Review Commission.  The complete text of the proposed amendments follows for your review.

Although there is no substitute for reading the entire document, a few points should be emphasized:

     -  Nothing in the proposed City Charter amendments increases taxes or fees to the City.

     -  The proposed City Charter amendments do not make any fundamental change in the form of government in Huber Heights.

     -  The City Charter amendments serve to clarify or simplify language and processes to reflect contemporary practices and legislative procedures and to increase efficiency overall.

To keep costs at a minimum, this public notice includes only those sections of the City Charter that are proposed to be amended.  Strikethrough type indicates deleted language; underlined type indicates new language.  Sections of the City Charter which are not affected are not shown.

This proposed body of amendments represent the best effort of the Charter Review Commission and the City Council to ensure the City Charter continues to meet the highest standards for Huber Heights.  As you review the proposed changes, the reasoning behind some of the amendments may not be obvious.  You are encouraged to call City Hall at (937) 233-1423 with any questions or you may contact members of the Charter Review Commission or City Council for information.  You may also get additional information from the City’s website at www.hhoh.org.  If you would like to read a copy of the complete text of the City Charter, you can find the document on the City’s website or you can obtain a paper copy of the City Charter at City Hall.

Having a strong, progressive City Charter is especially important to the City and for the future.  Please take the time to review the proposed changes and thank you for giving your attention to this important issue.
