The Charter Review Board consists of nine board members appointed by the City Commission. The Board shall serve for a term of one year provided that the terms may be extended for an additional six months at the sole discretion of the City Commission. This board reviews the City Charter for relevancy, fairness, and efficiency to help ensure the best governmental system possible with the City. The Charter Review Board is currently on hiatus and shall be re-appointed by the City Commission in May 2017 and every six years thereafter.
The Charter Review Board determines whether any amendments are needed to the current City Charter. Once an amendment is proposed by the Board, a public hearing about the proposed changes will be established for public input. Any recommended or proposed changes are then presented to the City's Commission for authorization. Upon approval a referendum is held where an amendment is presented to the electorate for final adoption.
