SARATOGA SPRINGS - It appears residents of Saratoga Springs will have another chance to vote on changing their form of government.

A group of citizens is pushing to get a charter change on the ballot in November that would change the government from the current form where five elected commissioners each handle a separate aspect of city business, to a professional city manager form where six elected councilors would each represent different areas of the city.

A similar proposal was defeated by just 10 votes in 2017.
