Tuesday, October 15, 2019 will be the last opportunity for residents to have their questions answered regarding the process of forming districts in Pineville.  The question as to whether Pineville should form districts will appear on a referendum ballot when you go to the polls to vote in November.  This final meeting is being held to educate voters on what it all means so that you can vote with confidence knowing that you have made the right choice for you and for Pineville.

The meeting will be held at the Hut Meeting Facility located at 413 Johnston Drive in Pineville and will run from 6:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. so please take advantage of this opportunity to get the information you need to make an informed and educated decision. 


This is the question as it will appear on the referendum ballot:

Shall Ordinance No. 2019-02, adopted on August 26, 2019,
        amending the Charter of the Town of Pineville, to increase
        the number of town council members to six (6), and to create
        electoral residency voting districts take effect in the Town of
        Pineville? 

       ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you vote "yes" -- in favor of the ordinance -- two additional council members will be added to the Town Council for a total of six (6) members and districts will be created. Candidates shall reside in and represent the districts but all candidates will be nominated and elected by all qualified voters of the town. The Mayoral position will remain as-is.

If you vote "no" -- against forming districts -- things will remain as they currently are -- four (4) council members and the Mayor, all elected at-large.
