(Perrysburg, OH) The Perrysburg city charter is about to get a rewrite.
Just like the Census counts population every decade, Perrysburg elects a group of ten citizens to review and revise its city charter. The charter commission has proven popular-- 34 people applied to take part, three times as many as needed.
The group selected by city council is truly non-partisan-- holding no other office, appointment, or employment in Perrysburg city government.
There are no guidelines for the charter review, which means the citizens panel can propose anything leading to alterations, revisions and amendments to the charter-- their own ideas or those submitted by the public.
Charter amendments proposed by the commission then would go on the ballot to a public vote, including such this as council pay raises, how elections are conducted or anything else
