The 7-member Commission was appointed by Council in June 2020, met two times over the past month, to review all sections of the City's Charter.

All Charter amendments are required to be approved by voters. At the February 2nd meeting, Council approved to hold a Special Charter Election on May 1, 2021 as a Joint Election with McLennan County.
