County Charter Review Committee’s Next Meeting in Tahoe City
August 24, 2012
The Placer County Charter Review Committee will hold its next meeting on Wed., Sept. 5, 2012 at noon at the county’s Customs House building, 775 North Lake Blvd., in Tahoe City.
The Board of Supervisors convened the 2012 Charter Review Committee to review the County Charter and make recommendations for amendments or revisions. The Charter is a governing document approved by voters in 1980 that provides flexibility in local decision making. The Charter also contains provisions that guide the organizational structure, duties and responsibilities of elected and appointed officials. The Charter requires the Supervisors to convene a Charter Review Committee every five years.
Topics for review by the Committee can come from the Board, other elected or appointed county officials, the Committee, the public, other agencies or county employees. Any recommendations for changes or additions proposed by the Committee will go to the Supervisors for review. Changes supported by the Board would then be submitted to county voters for consideration.
The Charter is available for viewing at: http://www.placer.ca.gov/departments/ceo/programs%20and%20policies/charter. The public is invited and encouraged to attend the meeting and provide input to the Committee on possible changes to the County Charter. For additional information, please call (530) 889-4030.
