Every ten years, the City’s Charter calls for a Charter Review Commission to review the Charter and make recommendations regarding any needed changes to the City’s Governing Body. The Charter Commission was appointed in 2022 and is scheduled to make its recommendations by May 2023. The Commission welcomes public input.
