County begins public Charter Review meetings – pls attend one!


Palm Beach County is beginning the Charter Review process.  If you recall from prior TAB updates, the Charter is the County’s constitution.  While many counties have Charter Review committees who meet periodically – eg. every 8 or 10 years,  Palm Beach County does not have a formal Charter Review process nor has it ever had a broad look at the charter in many, many years. 

County staff is going to have  a series of public meetings, beginning this week at which they will present details about the charter, the process and solicit ideas.  In addition, they have a website questionnaire where one can submit charter change ideas.  These will be compiled, reviewed and submitted to the County Commission over the next several months.  The Commission will select those to place on the  Nov. 2012 ballot for citizens to vote upon.

You can look up the details here.  Below are the currently scheduled meetings.  Before you attend one of these, check back to the site in case there are schedule changes.
