WATSON -- Voters in the small Chippewa County community of Watson voted Tuesday for a change in their city governance structure.

In a special election, voters cast 72 "yes" to 17 "no" ballots for a measure that will make the city clerk and treasurer positions a single, appointed position.


Currently, the city clerk is elected to that position and is a voting member of the Watson City Council. The treasurer is also elected currently, but does not have a vote.
