Port Richey City Council approves draft of ordinance for dissolving city

PORT RICHEY

Ordinance draft for dissolution okayed

City Council voted 3-2 Tuesday night to allow City Attorney Michael Brannigan to draft an ordinance that could prompt an April referendum on whether residents want to dissolve the city of 3,200. Vice Mayor Mark Hashim and council members Perry Bean and Phil Abts voted in favor of drafting the ordinance. Mayor Richard Rober and council member Steven O'Neill voted against it. Brannigan's ordinance will be presented at the council's Feb. 10 meeting. The issue of dissolving the city had faded into the background until last month, when a group of residents submitted a 25-page petition – the third in as many years – to dissolve the city. The petition lacked a properly worded ordinance, however. That prompted the council on Tuesday to ask Brannigan to create a new ordinance.
