JANUARY 7, 6PM CITY OF ROCKWALL CHARTER REVIEW COMMITTEE
City Council Chambers, 385 S Goliad, Rockwall
The City of Rockwall Charter review committee is a group of 10 citizens appointed by the council to do a review of charter provisions and make suggestions to the council about any changes needed to the city charter. The committee is created within the charter itself. The recommended changes can be matters of revising technical issues or substantive changes.
The current Rockwall City Council members and mayor are elected at large. That means each of the six seats on the council are elected from the entire population of the city,
Cities who elect council members from single member districts divide the city into geographical districts to allow for better representation of diverse segments of the municipal population. The idea is to promote overall representation of all groups within the city.
There is no specific issue or topic regarding single member districts; all aspects of the charter will be subject to comment. The committee will have public hearings on all charter review matters and any issues the public would like to address regarding the charter. Citizens of the City of Rockwall are invited to attend and provide comment.
The committee makes recommendations to the city council. The council then determines what issues should be submitted for electorate decision and the matters are placed on the municipal election ballot. Review the proposed charter to be discussed January 7th at the links below.
