Letter: Charter Commission could be reseated for further review

Posted

To the editor:
Over the course of this year, the City Council might consider identifying provisions within the City Charter which require fine-tuning in order to make our municipal government run more effectively. Charter Amendment questions can be placed on 2020 Election Ballot.
To this end, the Charter Review Commission or mini version thereof could be reinstated in early 2020.
Although the Commission did an excellent job in 2017, there is also still the need to further examine how we can make changes so that more well qualified residents decide to run for local office in the future.
