Flint Charter Review Commission
The Flint Charter Review Commission was comprised of nine members who were chosen at large by a vote of the people. Their mission, to complete a review of the City of Flint Charter then recommend changes, or possible revisions, that would meet the City’s needs now and in the future. For over two years, members of the commission met frequently and held engagement events within the community to gather input from residents. All meetings of the Commission are open to the public.
The Commission completed their review and updates to the City Charter and the revised charter was placed on the 2017 ballot for voters to approve, and they did. Effective January 1, 2018, the updated Charter is now the guiding document for the City of Flint. The previous Charter had been in place since it was adopted by a vote of the people on November 5, 1974.
