City's voters approve new charter Published: September 11, 2013

ALTUS -- The voters have given their approval to a new city charter.

The Lawton Constitution reports that the charter was approved by a 673 (74.2 percent) to 234 (25.8 percent) count.

The Charter for Progress "is designed to provide a number of revisions to city government," the newspaper reports. "Among the revisions are the setting up of a new form of government that would remove the mayor and city council members from day-to-day management of city business, allowing them to focus on governing and policy."
