Huntsville City Charter Under Review

Published on November 14, 2017 by Larry Crippen

The Huntsville City Charter is being reviewed. A review committee was appointed by the City Council in October and began its work Saturday. Wednesday at 4 o’clock the committee members will meet and consider how to accept public input and begin to hear from the Mayor and staff on items that need particular attention. Over the coming months, the committee intends to thoroughly review the Charter. Following that, the committee may choose to make recommendations to the City Council.

The City Council may accept, revise, or discard committee recommendations, and may also add other items, if it chooses, before scheduling charter amendments for an upcoming election. Changes to the City Charter result from the voters’ decisions on an election ballot. Per the Charter, a review must be done at least every five years. Under state law, a city charter cannot be changed more frequently than every two years. For more information, contact the City Secretary’s Office at 291-5403.
