Ojai City Councilmember Ryan Blatz responding to public comments at the July 27, 2022 meeting of the city council. 

At a special meeting July 27, the Ojai City Council voted 3-2 to place two questions before voters on the upcoming November ballot: ranked-choice voting and reverting to a rotating mayor selected by the elected members of the council.

According to City Manager James Vega, the vote had to take place at a special meeting because the deadline to place items on the November ballot is August 12 and the council will not meet again before that date.
