Boca Raton: Two amendments on ballot

The first calls for changing the residency requirements for mayor and City Council candidates. The city charter currently calls for a candidate to be a city resident for at least 30 days before the first day of the qualifying period.
The proposed amendment lengthens that period to one year, disqualifies persons with a non-city homestead exemption and provides that proof of residency will be established by ordinance.
The second proposed amendment, which if passed would take effect April 1, calls for eliminating a qualifying fee for candidates (currently $25) and instead requiring they submit a petition with 200 or more registered city voters.
