Charter Commission

Mayor Calnon has appointed a Charter Commission to update the City’s 113 year old Charter and to hear suggestions and evaluate possible changes.  The Commission expects to have its report completed in time for any significant changes to be placed on the ballot for the election in November of 2015.
