The City Council on Tuesday night passed on second reading new standards for recalling the mayor and City Council members.
Council members agreed to change the standard for recalling the mayor to that provided in state law - 15 percent of the registered voters.
Council members said that would be too high a standard for City Council members to be recalled so that was set at 15 percent of the registered voters of the district where the recall was being attempted.
City voters must vote in November on whether or not to approve the city charter change.
The current city charter requires a lesser standard for both the mayor and City Council. It is 50 percent of those that voted in the last mayoral election.
A group attempted a recall of Mayor Ron Littlefield and got approval from the Election Commission for the petition, but it was thrown out in court.
Voting no on first reading were council members Sally Robinson, Deborah Scott and Andrae McGary.
On second reading, Ms. Robinson changed her vote to yes.
