Citizen Charter Review Committee - November 9, 2017
On November 5, 2002, the citizens of Leon County adopted a Home Rule Charter, providing for full home rule authority under the law and citizen determination of the structure, powers, and functions of county government. A charter is a local "home rule constitution" approved by the local electorate, which specifies the structure, organization, and authority of county government.
The Leon County Charter provides three ways in which amendments to the Charter may be proposed, one of which is through a Citizen Charter Review Committee (CCRC). The Board of County Commissioners is required by the Charter to appoint a CCRC every eight years, 12 months prior to the general election. The Citizen Charter Review Committee is charged with reviewing the County's Home Rule Charter and proposing any amendments or revisions for consideration by the Board for placement on the 2018 general election ballot.
