Charter Review Commission Seeks Candidates
- Published: October 9, 2014
The Yellow Springs Village Council seeks resident applications for service on the Village’s Charter Review Commission. Effective governance requires periodic review of the Charter to ensure that it is in line with current law and desired policies of the Village.
This Charter Review Commission will consist of up to five electors appointed by Village Council, who live within the Village and hold no other public office, appointment, or employment with the Village. Two members of Council will sit on the Commission as voting members. In addition to these members, non-voting seats will be held by the Village Manager and Council Clerk. The Village Solicitor will advise the Commission on an as-needed basis.
The Charter Review Commission has the responsibility to study the Village Charter and make a report to Village Council of recommended revisions or amendments, if any, within six calendar months following appointment of the Commission. The Commission will determine the frequency of meeting dates and times.
Any resident interested in being considered for the Charter Review Commission is asked to submit a letter of interest to Village Clerk Judy Kintner, 100 Dayton St. Yellow Springs, OH 45387 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The letter of interest must include the following: reasons for interest, qualifications, and availability for regularly scheduled meetings.
The Charter Review Commission application is available at the Village Offices, 100 Dayton St., or online at http://www.yso.com. For more information, please contact Judy Kintner, Clerk of Council, 937-767-9126, or email@example.com.
The deadline for submitting an application, letter of interest and resume is October 20, 2014. Appointment to the Charter Review Commission will be made by Village Council by December 15, 2014.
