Novi voters make charter gender-neutral

NOVI, Mich. (AP) — Residents in a Detroit suburb have voted by a 2-to-1 margin to update the city charter to make language in the document gender-neutral. Novi's charter, last revised in 1977, has described the clerk's duties for the city of 55,000 using the phrase "he shall" at least eight times. The language in the document was there even though Novi's city clerks have been women. Several other Michigan communities have made similar changes.
