Overview

The City's original charter, granted in 1881, has been amended and or revised numerous times over the last 150 years, making easy access difficult. In 2018, when the City undertook an effort to consolidate these provisions into a single, more usable document, a number of organizational inconsistencies, outdated provisions and operational inefficiencies were revealed.  As a result, the Mayor and City Council jointly appointed the Committee on Charter Revision, as an advisory group tasked with proposing a strengthened and modernized charter.
