Grove City Charter Amendments Pamphlet

On Nov. 7, Grove City voters will decide on a number of proposed amendments to the city's charter. These amendments will impact a number of different areas in the city's government.

The City of Grove City has put together a pamphlet describing all the proposed charter changes. The pamphlet is available at the Grove City Library Reference Desk.

Because of the limited number of pamphlets, Grove City residents will be prioritized to receive them.
