Altoona Voters Support Study Commission, Elect Members
Voters in the City of Altoona have given their overwhelming support for the creation of a study commission that will examine how the city is governed.
The ballot referendum passed by a 3-1 margin. City officials spent the past few months trying to convince voters to support the idea of becoming a home rule charter form of government. City voters also elected the seven people on Tuesday who will serve on the study commission.
They include Penn State Altoona professor Richard Flarend, former Altoona Mayor Wayne Hippo, labor council president Bob Kutz, Blair Medical CEO Dave Duncan, businessman Richard Fiore Junior, Penelec community affairs manager Beverly Green and Heather Jo Eckles.
The group will spend the next nine months studying both forms of government before making their recommendations to council and the city’s residents. The potential to become a home rule charter is seen as a possible exit strategy that could allow the city to exit the state’s ACT 47 distressed municipality program.
