In August 2021, Council established a Charter Review Board (CRB) consisting of five residents who submitted applications of interest to serve. The mission of the CRB was to review the Village’s Charter, as it had not been reviewed in over ten years, and make Charter Amendment recommendations to Council. The CRB met numerous times over five months reviewing in microscopic detail every aspect and potential option to the items contained within the Village’s Charter.
During the July 14, 2022 Council Meeting, Council approved the CRB’s recommended changes. However, prior to these changes taking place, a Charter Referendum has to go before the Village electors for final approval.
In November, Council approved putting a Bond Referendum forward to the voters during the March 2023 Municipal Election to finance acquisition of environmentally sensitive, waterfront, or recreation lands, or lands for open spaces, archeological or historic preservation, or traffic mitigation, and recreational capital improvements.
