2017 Ballot Issues

Click HERE for information and the full text of all the proposed City Charter Amendments on the May 2, 2017 ballot.

City Charter Amendments

Dear Huber Heights Voter:

 Voters will be asked to consider various 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 eight (8) ballot issues for City Charter amendments for voters to consider at the May 2, 2017 special election.  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.  In 2016, 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 approved and recommended these City Charter amendments to City Council.  The Huber Heights City Council then reviewed the recommendations for these eight (8) ballot issues for City Charter amendments from the Charter Review Commission and approved the submission of these eight (8) ballot issues to the voters for consideration of approval.

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 May 2, 2017 ballot, 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 obtain 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 very important for the future of the City.  Please take the time to review the proposed changes and thank you for giving your attention to this important issue.

Energy Aggregation Archive

ISSUE #1 - Energy aggregation


Ballott SmallAggregation Small

The City of Huber Heights will provide an opportunity for residents to vote on the possibility for energy aggregation. Issue 1, Electricity Energy Aggregation, will be placed on the March 15, 2016 ballot. Issue 1 will allow the City to study all available electricity sources and negotiate with providers in order to obtain a bulk rate with the goal of providing a reduced cost to our residents. 

The City wants to look into how to lower energy costs for the community. One way is to join together as one large customer to negotiate and lower electricity costs. A vote for Issue 1 allows the City to represent the Community as an aggregated buying group to negotiate reduced electricity costs. The City is NOT mandating a supplier, controlling the utility, or creating revenue or profit. The purpose of Issue 1 is to allow the City to investigate options to negotiate reduced prices for electricity for Huber Heights residents and Businesses.

Please join us for Informational Meetings about Issue 1 and Energy Aggregation:

  • Wednesday February 17 10:00am at City Hall
  • Wednesday February 17 6:00pm at City Hall
  • Tuesday, March 8 5:30pm at City Hall
  • Monday, March 14 6:00pm at City Hall

FAQ's:

As common questions are presented and asked, we will continue to build this list

Q: Is the City mandating or controlling who I get my electricity from?

A:  No.  Governmental Aggregation is an method to gather interested parties into a large buying group to negotiate the best electricity rates.  At any time, you can "Opt Out" and not participate. 

Q:  Is the City using this as a method to generate revenue or profit?

A:  No.  The City Council has stated through policy and an adopted Ordinance and Resolution that there will be no fees, costs or capture of savings to provide any revenue or profit to the City.  All savings identified are provided for and only for the member residents and businesses.  Any cost from the supplier is billed directly from them, not the City; therefore there is no way the City can capture and fees or collect interest on billing, fees, etc.

Q:  How is the consultant selected, how much will that cost, and how will that be paid for?

A:  The consultant would be selected through an open, competitive bidding process. The cost will be determined through that process and only applied if approved and selected by City Council.  The City can choose to pay outright for the consultant services fee or build it in as a small cost divided amongst enrolled users

Informational Material:

This Power Point Presentation will be shared at various meetings by the City Manager as an informative piece that explains what and how energy aggregation works.

Energy aggregation


Aggregation Small

The passage of Issue 1 now allows the City to study all available electricity sources and negotiate with providers in order to obtain a bulk rate with the goal of providing a reduced cost to our residents. That will be through the development of an Electric Energy Aggregation Program.  Through the next few months, that program will be developed and reviewed to determine if the Program would be beneficial to the citizens of Huber Heights.  If it meets that objective, City Council will vote whether or not to implement the Program.  There will be a specific process followed for the development of the Program, and additional information, meetings and activities will occur in doing so.  All information will be shared here as a reference point.

The City is NOT mandating a supplier, controlling the utility, or creating revenue or profit. The purpose of Issue 1 is to allow the City to investigate options to negotiate reduced prices for electricity for Huber Heights residents and Businesses.
