MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Residents of Minot will vote next year on how large the City Council should be.

Some want to reduce the council’s size from 14 members elected from seven wards to five members elected at large. The city would keep its mayor and city manager.

The City Council has scheduled a March 1 special election on necessary changes to the city’s home rule charter. The changes would give authority to the city to change its government makeup.

The vote on the size of the council would take place during the June primary election.
