The Charter Review Committee (CRC) has shifted its focus from cleaning up charter language to addressing more substantive issues. At Monday night’s meeting, Chair John Hopkins directed committee members to work toward reaching consensus.
The committee will vote on the proposed changes after County Contract Attorney Chay Rennick has incorporated the changes and printed a final report.
The committee addressed changes suggested in writing by committee member Ralph Phelps. In a statement dated May 21, 2011, Phelps wrote, “We really need to overhaul the whole system, and make the Charter consistent with what that system is.”
