1. Preamble (Sec 1-3):
- Recommendation: Annually, a Charter Review committee will be convened by the Mayor to review and consider recommending amendments to the Charter. The Charter Review Committee shall consist of city resident electors: three (3) appointments by the Mayor and one (1) appointment by each councilman from their ward, one (1) appointment by the President of Council. The Law Director will appoint one (1) secretary to the Commission.
- Reason: The committee feels that waiting four years to review the charter is too long. There is too much to review. With a standing committee in place, issues can be addressed on a more regular and manageable basis. The committee also feels this Committee’s selection process was fair and so does the Mayor and each member of City Council.
