Home Rule will appear on 2013 Asotin County General Election Ballot

Asotin, WA -- The Asotin County Commission passed a resolution Monday that will put a home rule initiative, and combine governing bodies of two cities and the county, into one.

In an effort to cut costs, Clarkston Attorney Scott Broyles and members of Citizens for Better Government want to streamline the local governments. That includes the city of Asotin, the city of Clarkston, and Asotin County. After limited discussion by the Commissioners, the resolution was passed. Now the measure will appear on the 2013 general election ballot.
