At this time, a commission is appointed every 10 years./pp Questions #3 asks to clarify the separation of powers between the mayor and city council. It would limit council's power to make legislative changes to the administrative code, while providing the mayor sole power to issue administrative regulation and procedure./pp Question #4 asks voters if the city charter should be amended to allow one person to serve on two boards or commissions concurrently./pp Question #5 seeks to clarify the relationship between the mayor and the managing director and would essentially give the mayor more oversight over the managing director./pp Question #6 asks voters to allow the mayor to create new positions without city council's approval./pp Question #7 involves city assets. If the city wants to sell, lease or enter into a concession agreement for a period longer than 10 years or something worth more than $10 million, officials would have to put it to a public vote./pp Debbie Oliveri, Berks County's director of elections said, although the questions are complex, she encourages everyone to vote./pp "One vote can make a difference and has made a difference in other years, so it is extremely important for people to come out and vote," Olivieri said./pdiv class="feedflare" a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=jwnXvcQ_w18:XyYkSzIkt3M:yIl2AUoC8zA"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=jwnXvcQ_w18:XyYkSzIkt3M:bcOpcFrp8Mo"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?d=bcOpcFrp8Mo" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=jwnXvcQ_w18:XyYkSzIkt3M:V_sGLiPBpWU"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?i=jwnXvcQ_w18:XyYkSzIkt3M:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=jwnXvcQ_w18:XyYkSzIkt3M:F7zBnMyn0Lo"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?i=jwnXvcQ_w18:XyYkSzIkt3M:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"/img/a a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?a=jwnXvcQ_w18:XyYkSzIkt3M:qj6IDK7rITs"img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"/img/a /divimg src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/WFMZ-TV/69News/TopStories/~4/jwnXvcQ_w18" height="1" width="1"/
