The Charter Commission, established in 2022, is tasked with drafting a City Charter to be presented to City Council and subsequently the voters for consideration in transitioning to a Home Rule City.
A Charter is the foundation of a local government and functions as the municipal equivalent of a state or federal constitution, setting forth guiding principles for governance. Composed by citizens, a charter specifies the most fundamental relationships between a government and its community. It establishes the framework for how a local government operates in terms of its structure, responsibilities, functions, and processes. The way public officials are elected, the form of government, and the role citizens play in local government are just a few examples of the important choices articulated in a charter.
Meetings Meetings are held on an as needed basis as determined by the City Administrator.
