Charter Review Commission
Are there changes to the County's Charter that you would like to have considered at the November election? The San Juan County Charter Review Commission will be conducting two Town Hall meetings on Friday, March 12 and Saturday, March 13. Come one, come all, learn about the work of the Commission and 'have your say' early on in this important process! Members of the County Charter Review Commission will share some of the work they are doing and want to hear from you, too.
In preparation for joining the Town Hall, you can view a list of issues being considered by the eight subcommittees. We've included a listing of committee members, as well as the committee leader and contact e-mail.
This truly is democracy in action at the local level! Be a part of it!
Adopted by voters in 2005 and put in place in 2006, The San Juan County Home Rule Charter calls for a review by an elected Charter Review Commission after 5 full years of operation under the new form of government, and at least every 10 years thereafter. This is the current version of the San Juan County Charter.
The Charter Review Commission began work on January 21, 2021, electing Kevin Ranker as its Chair and Olivia Roseberry as its Vice Chair. The Commission shall conduct special and regular, public meetings with notices posted on the County’s online calendar. Meetings are currently held via Zoom on Wednesdays, 4:00pm-6:30pm*.
