What is the Charter Review Committee?

The Charter Review Committee is made up of Richland Hills residents and was put together in November by the Richland Hills City Council to work with City Staff and the City Attorney to review the current City Charter and recommend updates. The committee presented their proposed charter amendments to the public at the Charter Review Town Hall on January 12.

The Charter Review Committee will consider feedback provided by the public and present their final proposed City Charter amendments to City Council during the council work session at 6 pm on Monday, January 23. The City Charter was last amended in November 2013. Charter Review Committee meeting agendas and minutes are available in the Agenda Center.

How to Provide Feedback

Residents can provide feedback on the proposed charter amendments at the January 23 City Council meeting. Public comment will be accepted during Item 6A of the regular session. Residents can also email any questions or comments they wish to be read during the meeting to the City Secretary by noon on January 23.

Council will vote to approve the proposed amendments during the January 23 City Council meeting and will vote on a resolution to call a Charter Election, including ballot language, during the February 13 City Council meeting.
