DIGEST

County government issues. Provides that in a county having a population of more than 300,000 but less than 400,000, a public question shall be held in the county at the 2014 general election on whether the executive and legislative structure of county government should be changed. Provides that if the public question is approved, the voters of the county shall not elect a board of county commissioners, but shall instead elect a single county executive to serve as the county executive and shall elect a county council that has the legislative and fiscal powers and duties of the county. Provides that in a ... county with a single county executive, the county council must consist of nine members elected from single-member districts (instead of four members elected from single-member districts and three members elected at large). Provides that if the office of single county executive becomes vacant, the county council shall appoint an individual to serve as interim single county executive until the office is filled. Provides that in a county that has abolished the board of county commissioners and has elected a single county executive, the county council may adopt an ordinance to change the county government structure back to a structure that includes: (1) the election of a board of county commissioners (instead of a single county executive); and (2) a county council in which four members are elected from single-member districts and three members are elected at large (instead of a county council in which all nine members are elected from single-member districts). Provides that if such an ordinance is adopted, a public question shall be held to determine whether the county government structure shall be changed back to a structure that includes the election of a board of county commissioners. Provides that in a county that has a single county executive, the drainage board consists of: (1) the single county executive; and (2) two or four persons (as determined by the single county executive) who are appointed by the single county executive.
