Flint Residents Vote for Charter Update on Aug. 8th
In 2015, voters in Flint, Michigan selected nine members to serve on the Flint Charter Review Commission.
Commissioners spent the last two years drafting the charter to be approved in a citywide referendum election on August 8, 2017. The proposed charter includes lobbyist registration provisions and a one-year revolving door provision for public servants.
The proposed revisions may be put up to a vote up to three times. In the event voters reject the proposed charter after three referenda, the commission is dissolved.
