Council to address changes to charter


Commerce – The Commerce City Council Tuesday is schedule to address proposed changes to the City's Charter as part of its regular session agenda.

Members of the city's Charter Review Committee have recently been working to determine if any changes are needed to the charter, the document containing the rules and regulations governing how the City Council, city administration and related agencies do business.

The committee has proposed amendments to four of the city's seven Charter articles, including public safety, forfeiture of office, new rules on the passage of ordinances and resolutions, the appointment and removal of a city manager, and annual budget.

If approved, the items will go on next May's ballot for citizen approval.

Tuesday's meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. at Commerce City Hall.
