Charter Review Commission Formed in Flint, Michigan
Voters in Flint, Michigan have selected nine members to serve on the Flint Charter Review Commission. Such a commission hasn’t been formed in the city for nearly 40 years.
Commissioners have up to three years to revise the city’s charter. The revisions must ultimately be approved by voters in a citywide referendum election.
Proposed revisions can be put up to a vote three times. In the event voters reject the proposed charter after three referenda, the commission is dissolved.
