APPROVE THE REPORT OF THE CHARTER REVISION COMMISSION

 

Mr. Kimmel thanked the entire Common Council, the Law Department and Ms. Dixon. He explained that in January, the Common Council decided to focus on issues inherited from the past Common Council. He said that they are not insensitive to other issues and will begin to consider another Charter Revision this summer. He said that the Charter Revision Commission worked in a bi-partisan manner. The plan is to put up the four questions on the November ballot.
