County Charter

The Charter is a governing document approved by voters in 1980 that guides the organizational structure, duties, and responsibilities of elected and appointed officials and provides flexibility in local decision-making. The Charter requires the formation of a Charter Review Committee every five years in order to review, evaluate, and make recommendations for amendments to or revisions of the Charter.

The Placer County Charter is available as part of the County Code.
