img_8997Flint Charter Review Commission

The Flint Charter Review Commission is composed of nine members who were chosen at large by a vote of the people. They are tasked with performing a complete review of the City of Flint’s Charter and making recommendations on changes or possible revisions that would  meet the City’s needs now and into the future. During the next two to three years, they will meet as often as needed and will hold various engagement events within the community to gather input from residents. All meetings of the Commission are open to the public. Agendas and minutes from each meeting will be posted among these pages.

Once their review has been completed and recommendations made, the revised charter will placed on the ballot for a decision by the city’s registered voters. If the Charter is given the go-ahead, it will become the guiding document for the city. If rejected, the Commission has the ability to submit up to two additional revisions to voters. If no charter revision is passed after the third attempt, then the commission is dissolved and the current charter would remain in place. Flint’s current charter has been in place since it was adopted by a vote of the people on November 5, 1974.
