Article I. General Provisions

Section 04.25.220 Charter Amendment
  1. The authority may propose to the city council, by resolution of its board passed by a procedure outlined in the charter at a regular or special meeting of which thirty days’ advance written notice was given, that its charter be amended.
  2. When required by law, the authority shall propose to the city council an amendment to the authority’s charter that will conform with said law. As necessary and appropriate the city council may amend the authority’s charter.
  3. Information regarding a proposed charter amendment, including the proposed amendment and a statement of its purpose and effect, is to be provided to members of the board two weeks prior to the meeting at which a vote will be taken.
  4. After adoption of a proposed charter amendment by the authority’s board of directors, the authority files three complete copies of the charter with the city clerk. One copy is in the format that strikes over material to be deleted and underlines new material. If the city council approves the proposed amendment, the revised charter is issued in duplicate originals, each bearing the City’s official seal and attestation by the city clerk. One original and the underlined and overstricken copy are retained by the city clerk as a public record and the other original is delivered to the authority. A charter amendment proposed by the authority takes effect and becomes a part of the charter upon issuance of the revised charter by the city clerk.
  5. The charter can be amended only by ordinance.
