The 2017-2018 Charter Review Committee will hold first meeting
The 2017-2018 City Charter Review Committee is ready to begin its work reviewing the City Charter and will hold their first meeting Wednesday, November 8, at 4 p.m. at City Hall. This initial meeting will allow the Committee to select a chair and decide on a meeting schedule and other basic matters.
The five-member group will spend the next several months closely analyzing the document. After doing so, the group may recommend changes to the document to the City Council. Should the Council choose, they can accept, reject, or amend those recommendations, and can add others. In order for a change to become part of the Charter, however, any amendments will have to be approved by the voters at a special election.
The 2017-2018 Charter Review Committee includes Mayor Pro Tem Keith D. Olson, Councilmembers Clyde D. Loll and Tyler McCaffety, former Mayor Jane Monday, and former Councilmember Dalene Zender. The Committee will likely hear from City officials and will accept public comment submitted through the City Secretary's Office. The group was nominated by Mayor Brauninger and approved unanimously by the Council during its meeting on October 17, 2017.
