Charter Review Commission

Charter Section 7.01  Charter Review Commission


In January, 1966 and each five years thereafter, the Mayor shall appoint, subject to confirmation by a majority of the members elected and appointed to Council, seven qualified electors of the Municipality holding no other office or appointment in this Municipality, as members of a Charter Review Commission to serve no more than 12 months from the date of its first meeting. The members shall serve without compensation.  

Charter Review Commission's role is to review the Charter and then make recommendations to Council for updates it thinks is necessary.  Any change to the Charter requires City Council to pass an ordinance by a 2/3 vote to certify the question to the electors of the City.  The amendment only becomes effective upon approval of the electors of the City.
