Middlesbrough mayoral referendum
5:26pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
A REFERENDUM is being held in Middlesbrough next week to decide how its council is run in future.
Residents will be asked on Thursday to choose whether to keep the existing mayoral system or install a leader who is an elected councillor.
Depending on the outcome of the referendum, the chosen system will take effect from May, 2015.
Votes can be cast in person between 7am and 10pm on Thursday, September 26, and the count will take place at Middlesbrough Town Hall when polls close.
The result is expected to be declared by the counting officer later that night.
