The Charter Review Commission (CRC) for the City of Kerrville will be holding a public hearing on Wednesday, December 6, beginning at 4 p.m. at Kerrville City Hall, 701 Main Street. Prior to opening the public hearing, the CRC has scheduled a presentation which will be centered around its proposed charter amendments. The CRC invites attendees to make comments on the proposed amendments following the event.
During the August 22 City Council meeting, Council authorized city staff to initiate a review of the City Charter, which is a document prepared by the citizens of Kerrville to help provide direction to city government on how to operate. Section 12.06 of the charter requires that city council initiate a charter review to be conducted by a council-appointed CRC composed of seven members.
At the September 12 City Council meeting, Council appointed seven members to the CRC. Since that time, the CRC began meeting and has held five meetings. CRC’s goal is to have recommendations in the form of amendments to the charter for inclusion in a council meeting during January 2024, and for placement on the May 4, 2024 general election ballot for public consideration.
The current City Charter may be reviewed online at the city’s website: www.kerrvilletx.gov.
