Shall Section 3.05 of Article III of the Charter of the City of Missouri City be amended to clarify that the mayor pro tem of the city council may be elected at the first regular city council meeting following a runoff election? MAYOR ALLEN OWEN is encouraging “ALL” registered voters in Missouri City, Texas to vote “YES” on CHARTER PROPOSITION A in the Tuesday, November 7, 2017 General Election.

Mayor Owen told Houston Business Connections Magazine© recently that CHARTER PROPOSITION B needs to be approved because the city of Missouri City already has an “Umbrella Policy” that addresses this concern.

City of Missouri City, CHARTER PROPOSITION C

Shall Subsections 4.01.D and 4.01.F of Article IV of the Charter of the City of Missouri City be amended to provide that the city manager may appoint, suspend, and remove department directors and assistant city managers without the concurrence of the city council? MAYOR ALLEN OWEN is encouraging “ALL” registered voters in Missouri City, Texas to vote “YES” on CHARTER PROPOSITION C in the Tuesday, November 7, 2017, General Election.

City of Missouri City, CHARTER PROPOSITION D

Shall Section 4.05 of Article IV of the Charter of the City of Missouri City be amended to allow the city manager to establish, combine, discontinue, redesignate, or combine city departments? MAYOR ALLEN OWEN is encouraging “ALL” registered voters in Missouri City, Texas to vote “YES” on CHARTER PROPOSITION D in the Tuesday, November 7, 2017, General Election. Mayor Owen told Houston Business Connections Magazine© recently that CHARTER PROPOSITION D needs to be approved because, along with other duties the City Manager should be afforded the opportunity to establish, combine, discontinue, redesignate or combine city departments.

City of Missouri City, CHARTER PROPOSITION E

Shall Sections 6.01 and 6.02 of Article VI of the Charter of the City of Missouri City be amended to make the Charter consistent with City of Missouri City Resolution No. R-16-32, adopted on October 17, 2016, changing the City's election date from May to November? MAYOR ALLEN OWEN voted against this measure when it was initially brought before Missouri City Council. He recently told Houston Business Connections Magazine© that he voted against this because all the other cities, school districts, and municipal utility districts “ALL” have their election in May and that he believes people should be able to vote on Missouri City issues without having to read through a lengthy ballot where Missouri City, Texas is at the bottom of the said ballot. So, Mayor Allen Owen is encouraging “ALL” registered voters in Missouri City to vote “NO” on CHARTER PROPOSITION E in the Tuesday, November 7, 2017, General Election.

City of Missouri City, CHARTER PROPOSITION F

Mayor Owen told Houston Business Connections Magazine© recently that CHARTER PROPOSITION F is simply a name change to reflect the duties of that particular position consistent with other cities titles.

City of Missouri City, CHARTER PROPOSITION G

Shall Sections 9.01 and 9.03 of Article IX of the Charter of the City of Missouri City be amended to change the City of Missouri City's fiscal year from July 1 through June 30 to October 1 through September 30? MAYOR ALLEN OWEN is encouraging “ALL” registered voters in Missouri City, Texas to vote “YES” on CHARTER PROPOSITION G in the Tuesday, November 7, 2017 General Election. Mayor Owen told Houston Business Connections Magazine© recently that CHARTER PROPOSITION G will help Missouri City’s governing body to plan better for the budget if they’re afforded the opportunity to see what the CAD revenues are going to be (early on) rather than having to play the guessing game. According to Mayor Owen, Tax rolls aren’t actually available for review until later in the year, after the “ORIGINAL FISCAL” year.
