Cedar Rapids volunteers needed to review city charter


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- The Cedar Rapids City Council will establish a Charter Review Commission soon. The commission members will review the existing charter and may, within twelve months, recommend any charter amendments to the Mayor and City Council. The Council will then either make the changes recommended by the commission or submit such amendments to the voters.

The 2011 Charter Review Commission will be comprised of nine members. Each Cedar Rapids City Council member will nominate one person to serve. Applicants must be residents of Cedar Rapids. The Commission will meet as needed beginning after January 25, 2011. Cedar Rapids district information is available at http://www.cedar-rapids.org/city-council/mayor-council/findyourdistrict/pages/default.aspx.

Applications are available on the city's website, http://www.cedar-rapids.org/government/boardsandcommissions/pages/howtoapply.aspx or at City Hall, 3851 River Ridge Drive NE. Applications must be returned to the City Manager's Office by 5 PM on Tuesday, January 11, 2011. This abbreviated deadline is due to the fact that the appointments will be on the January 25, 2011, City Council agenda.
