A community’s Charter is its foundation of governance. Every ten years at the end of the decade, City Council appoints a group of residents to serve on the Charter Review Commission. This group reviewed New Albany’s Charter from Fall 2018 to May 2019, and recommended the following charter revisions to City Council, which accepted the recommendations. Most of the recommended revisions are housekeeping in nature, like changing title names as a result of New Albany becoming a city in 2011, but all suggested revisions are noted in the link above. As a matter of process, these changes will be voted on by the full New Albany electorate this November. If approved by the majority, these changes will take effect in 2020.
