On July 20th, the York City Council repealed the residency requirement for certain city employees. There are pros and cons for residency requirements depending on how you look at the big picture. At the July 20th meeting, City Council eliminated the residency requirement by a vote of 3-2.
Mayor Karen Bracey had requested that the motion be tabled for further study and a survey of city residents be taken. Her request was denied and the vote proceeded.
Now it appears Mayor Bracey will use her power of veto to stop the elimination of the residency requirement until a survey of city residents can be conducted.
