Youngstown City Council is sending a pair of issues to the Board of Elections to be included on the ballot in November.

Voters will consider a charter amendment to dissolve the city’s Parks and Recreation Commission, the five-member, volunteer board which appoints the city park director and makes recommendations on park projects.

Also, the Community Bill of Rights, which aims to ban fracking within city limits, gets another shot after failing 56 to 43 percent at the polls back in May.
