FINAL LIST OF RECOMENDATIONS (17)


1. Preamble (Sec 1-3):
  • Recommendation: A Charter Review committee will be convened annually by the Mayor. The 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 basis. The committee also feels current selection process was fair and so does the Mayor as well as each member of City Council.
