Charter City Update

Posted on March 2, 2018 at 12:40 PM by Margaret Livingston

As directed by the City Council, staff has begun work with the Charter Committee. Meetings are now scheduled throughout February and March for the Committee to research and develop a draft charter for City Council consideration in April. Additionally, the City Manager has engaged Godbe Research to perform a statistically valid research survey of residents to determine their feelings regarding a potential new Charter for the City and the strength of feeling around certain elements that could be contained in a charter. The survey is anticipated to begin in mid-February and take a couple of weeks to complete.
