Plenty on their plates

GREENVILLE — The Citizens Charter Review intends this week to continue reviewing the document which regulates how the City of Greenville operates.

The panel has only a few weeks left to present any recommended changes to the City Council, if the propositions are to be considered by voters this spring.

The committee is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. Thursday in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street.

The panel, made up of seven local residents, is set to look over a wide swath of the Charter this week; from Section 27, which concerns the times for the scheduling and order of City Council meetings, to Section 132, which establishes the Board of Development.

The committee also plans Thursday to vote on any recommended revisions to Sections 1 through 26 of the Charter.

The committee is hoping to complete its review and provide recommendations to the City Council in time for the inclusion of any proposed changes to the Charter on the May municipal election ballot.

The Charter is the document which contains the rules and regulations governing how the Council, the city administration and related agencies do business.

State law allows the charter to be amended every two years and to also reflect changes in state law if needed.

The last Charter review resulted in an election in May 2010 during which Greenville’s registered voters passed all 13 proposed amendments on the ballot.

A complete copy of the current Charter is available on the City of Greenville Web site at www.ci.greenville.tx.us.
