The Charter Review Advisory Board will begin work in October, 2022 and is expected to work for a year with their suggestions presented to the Council in November of 2023. Council will consider the suggestions in December of 2023 and any items requiring a community vote will be submitted to the Election Board in 2024 for the April election of that year.
