Council to consider Charter Review changes


Greenville – There could be some new changes to the Greenville city charter this spring. On Tuesday, Charter Review Committee Chairman Gerry Morris presented 13 proposed recommendations on how to change the city's governing document.

The items range from correcting a list of typographical errors in the existing Charter to giving the Mayor a seat on the Greenville Electric Utility System (GEUS) board of trustees and increasing the annual transfer of GEUS revenues to the city's general fund from 3 percent to 5 percent.

The Council will decide Feb. 23 on which of the recommended changes will be added to the May 8 ballot.

A number of items will also go before Commerce voters in May to decide on proposed changes to its charter.
