The city council is looking at revising the City Charter. You can find the official version here, and a pdf version with some suggestions highlighted here.
There are a number of places that need to be reviewed. Sections 60 through 64 on the chief of police will get some review. Not sure if they are ready to try an appointed chief yet, but there is probably some clean up needed to bring it current with state law.
There are many changes needed to adjust for inflation. As unpopular as it might be, the maximum fine in section 5 is probably too low. Section 10, which sets compensation for the Mayor and Council members, needs some serious consideration. If these are paid positions, then lets at least get them up to minimum wage levels. They shouldn't be getting rich from being on council but the pay should be reasonable.
They need to look at Section 36, the Lake Nasworthy trust fund . Additional flexibility to use that fund for projects around Lake Nasworthy would help solve some long standing problems.
Section 65, on the parks commission, should be reviewed. At a minimum we probably need more than 3 park commissioners. The size of the city and the number of parks has grown significantly since the commission was formed. The small size of the board causes problems because of the open meetings act. We also need to see if the section on it's financing should be changed.
There is section 66, a Board of City Development, which was used before we had the Chamber of Commerce. Probably needs to be removed because it is no longer being used.
There is also a need to put the Cities stance on eminent domain in the charter.
These are just the highlights. Take a look at the charter, and give us input. The charter commission will be forming soon, and it would be good to have things ready for a November election.
