Maitland's Charter Review Commission seeks public input for proposed changes to the city charter. For more information, visit the Commission web page here.
This committee serves at the direction of the City Council to review and recommend changes to Maitland’s City Charter. Members recommend necessary updates, additions and subtractions to the legal guidelines for the municipality’s government system. The committee includes five members who serve until December 31, 2021.
A charter is a founding document of a City that establishes the governing system and structure.
Generally, Maitland’s Charter defines the powers of the City as granted by the state, the municipal powers and organization of the City Council, the roles and responsibilities of the Mayor, City Council members, City Clerk, and City Manager. It details the procedures for elections, initiatives, referendum and recall elections, and how vacancies are filled. It also provides a guide on how the City is managed, the way taxes are levied and bonds are issued, and how to amend the Charter.
