The City Council’s Charter Revision Committee is refining proposed changes to the city’s charter that were completed by a Charter Commission in December 2008.
A final version of the proposed changes was submitted to the state Legislature in 2009 for approval, but the document did not progress past a subcommittee after some committee members expressed concern about certain passages.
With this year’s beginning of a new General Assembly, Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan has established a Charter Revision Committee to review the work of the Charter Commission and make appropriate revisions, as well as add needed changes that have surfaced since the Charter Commission convened.
Upon completion, the Charter Revision Committee will present its final draft to the full City Council for consideration and approval. A final version will then be forwarded to the Legislature for consideration and approval before the legislative session concludes.
Charter Revision Committee members are Bill Summers, chairman; Jeff Burkhart; Geno Grubbs; Kaye Jones; and Wallace Redd.
The committee’s work will be posted on the city’s website as it progresses, so the public can follow its actions.
Committee meetings will be posted on the meeting calendar on the website and are open to the public. However, residents will not be part of the committee’s discussion, but anyone wishing to make comments or suggestions to committee members should do so through their City Council representative.
