Trouble in Watertown
The promoters of Charter Change in Saratoga Springs have prominently featured Watertown as a good example of the city manager model. They have hosted the city manager of Watertown here in Saratoga Springs a number of times. Apparently Watertown is now considering dropping the city manager form and replacing it with a strong mayor form. The mayor has agreed to establish a charter commission to pursue this change. Two newly elected council members ran and won on a platform of changing the form.
