Challenge needed to check petitions

Published 06/23/2010, The Daily Republic

It appears Mitchell voters will have their say on a proposal to convert dozens of city-owned acres to park land.
Unless someone challenges petitions submitted Monday to City Hall and can prove several dozen signatures are not those of registered voters in the city, the issue, simmering in town for months, will go to a vote Nov. 2.
The land-use petition has 550 signatures, exceeding the required 483 names needed, according to Finance Officer Marilyn Wilson. The city is not required to ensure the signatures are those of registered voters, although it does check to ensure names and signatures match as well as other details.
