The 18 amendments are mostly housecleaning issues.
Published Feb. 4, 2019

Tampa voters face 18 amendments on the March 5 ballot to Tampa's city charter, a constitution of sorts that lays out the basic framework for city governance and operations. For the most part, the amendments are housecleaning matters, updating or clarifying language in the charter. Several also bring provisions of the charter in line with modern practices or established law. On all 18 charter amendments, the Tampa Bay Times recommends voting Yes.
