GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - The Gainesville City Commission removed a discussion on a potential change in the city’s form of government from Thursday’s meeting agenda.

Commissioners were set to discuss a shift from a weak mayor system to a strong mayor system.

These terms are not a direct judgment on the effectiveness of the mayor. Rather, they detail the level of authority given to the city’s mayor.

TV20 will have the update if the agenda item is revisited at a later date.
