Applications have been accepted and interviews are now complete for the City of Webster Groves Charter Review Advisory Board. The Council will discuss the applications and select members at the September 20, 2022 Council meeting.
The Charter Review Advisory Board will work with staff, a City Council liaison, and the City Attorney to review the current City Charter for sections and/or language or policies that may be outdated and propose amendments for an updated Charter to the City Council. The committee will present any recommended amendments to the Council for consideration and the Council will determine which proposals will be voted on by City residents.
In appointing the nine members of the Charter Review Advisory Board, the Council seeks to create a diverse board. This diversity includes characteristics such as age, gender identity, race, geography, education, length of residence, and professional background. Board members must be registered to vote in Webster Groves.
The board will begin its work in October.
