How can city decisions be made?
The Preserve Navarre Nonprofit undertook 6 months of research to investigate different types of city government to provide options to Navarre residents.
Researchers examined four major Florida government styles including:
- Mayoral or "Strong Mayor" form of city government
- Council-led or "Weak Mayor" form of city government
- Commission form of city government
- Council manager form of government
The video below (produced by Florida League of cities) provides additional information and a brief explanation of the different forms of government.
The options are shortened for the purposes of the study along with a "mixed" option that would utilize component from each model.
A Navarre city council would be comprised of members from each voting precinct. The number of members would be determined by the size of the city which is a question included in the survey.
