What is the Charter Review Commission and what do they do?

In accordance with Section 13.6 of the Charter, every ten years, the Mayor appoints a commission of nine qualified electors to serve as a Charter Review Commission.  The Commission recommends any desired changes to the Charter to City Council to be placed before the voters. The current Charter Review Commission was appointed in early 2022 and held 14 public meetings to review and analyze the city's charter.
