The Cloverdale City Council has requested that the county include the part-time office of Treasurer on the November 8th ballot. The council mistakenly failed to include the office in an earlier request to the Board of Supervisors. The current Treasurer is Michael Nixon. One council member is against Cloverdale having a Treasurer.
The November 8th ballot will also include a measure to approve an ordinance prohibiting all fireworks in the city.
