Charter Review Commission to Conduct Public Hearings
The Pinellas County Charter Review Commission (CRC) has announced two public hearing dates for meetings in St. Petersburg and Clearwater. The 13-member Charter Review Commission is appointed by the Board of County Commissioners every six years to look at the Pinellas County Charter and discuss areas in need of improvement. The commission comprises four elected officials and nine members of the community. The commission functions as an independent authority with the ability to put charter amendments and referendum questions directly on the November 2010 general election ballot. Any such proposed amendments will be outlined in a report to citizens issued by July 31. The commission is seeking public input on its proposed amendments and recommendations and is encouraging Pinellas County citizens to attend the public hearing. The public hearing will be conducted Monday, June 28, Pinellas County Courthouse, 5th Floor Assembly Room (315 Court St. Clearwater.) The meeting begins at 6:00 p.m.
