Charter Review Commission Sets Meeting Schedule
In its Jan. 25 meeting, the Pinellas County Charter Review Commission published its meeting schedule for the coming six months; the time allotted this commission to complete its work.
The 13-member Charter Review Commission is appointed by the Board of County Commissioners every six years to look at the Pinellas County Charter and discuss areas in need of improvement. The commission comprises four elected officials and nine members of the community. The commission functions as an independent authority with the ability to put charter amendments and referendum questions directly on the November 2010 general election ballot. Any such proposed amendments would be outlined in a report to the citizens issued by July 31, 2010.
All meetings begin at 4 p.m. at the Mid County Tax Collector's office, Starkey Lakes Corporate Center, 13025 Starkey Road in Largo:
