SUMMARY:

 

City Charter Article VIII - Charter Review and Charter Amendments sets out the protocol for a Charter Review, Establishing the Charter Review Commission (CRC), Submission of a Report from the CRC and subsequent action by the City Council.

 

The Charter Review Commission was established in September of 2021, began meeting in January of 2022, finalized their work with the approval of a report to City Council in June of 2022 wherein certain recommendations for proposed Charter amendments were made by the CRC.

 

In July of 2022, City Council reviewed those recommendations and in accordance with the City Charter determined which of the proposed amendments, if any, would be included on the November 8, 2022, General Election Ballot.

 

On July 28, 2022, City Council approved, on first reading, certain ordinances containing the ballot language for proposed Charter Amendments.

 

On August 18, 2022, City Council will consider these same ordinances for approval on second reading.  Once they are approved on second reading, the work of the CRC will be complete.

 

Given that Charter directed tasks have been undertaken, achieved, and completed, the CRC should be sunset with no further action required or requested.
