Charter Review Task Force to Hold its Last Meeting

MIAMI (February 23, 2018)

The Miami-Dade County Charter Review Task Force will hold its last meeting on Monday, February 26, 2018, at 6 p.m., in Commission Chambers at the Stephen P. Clark Center, located at 111 N.W. First Street in downtown Miami.

The meeting of the Miami-Dade County Charter Review Task Force is scheduled to discuss and solicit public input on the final report, and to consider and take action on any matters within the Task Force’s purview.

On March 20, 2017, the Board of County Commissioners approved Resolution No. R-304-17, creating a Charter Review Task Force. The Charter Review Task Force will review the Home Rule Charter of Miami-Dade County in its entirety and will prepare and submit to the Board of County Commissioners written recommendations setting forth any proposed amendments or revisions to the Charter.

In conducting its review, the Task Force is charged with the following: Study the Final Report of the last Charter Review Task Force; study all proposed charter amendments submitted to the voters since the last Charter Review Task Force issued its recommendations; invite knowledgeable members of the community to appear and make recommendations; invite representatives of Miami-Dade County’s municipalities to appear and make recommendations;
conduct public hearings at various stages in the review process; conduct regional public meetings to convey recommendations of the Charter Review Task Force to persons in attendance and receive any additional comments from the public regarding recommendations.

The Task Force consists of 15 members, with 13 of the members appointed by each County Commissioner, one by the Mayor of Miami-Dade County, and one by the Chair of the Miami-Dade Legislative Delegation.
