CHARTER REFERENDUM 2023


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.  

View the proposed Charter changes recommended as they will appear on the March 14, 2023 election ballot.  View the Ordinance.
