City Ordinance garners support for a win


By Portia Williams - [email protected]



The Portsmouth City Ordinance Sections 49 and 50, has passed. Results for the Charter were 2943, and against the Charter 1704.

City Council sought to have the ability to make appropriations sufficient to cover the necessary expenses of the city before the beginning of the fiscal year and before the annual appropriation ordinance has been passed.

Derek Allen City Manager of the Portsmouth, had positive remarks for the financial future of the city.

“I am very pleased in the results for the Charter,” Allen said. “Just another step in building a good financial foundation for the city of Portsmouth. This is something that should have been changed a long time ago, so that we can have our budget done, and ready to be in place on January 1st. This change should allow that to happen.”
