Section C-100. Charter Review Commission.

The Mayor, with City Council approval, shall either appoint a Charter Review Commission or place on the ballot the election of a Charter Review Commission no later than December 31, 2017, and immediately following each ten-year period thereafter. Should the appointment/election of a Charter Review Commission not occur by December 31, 2017, or in the ten-year periods immediately thereafter, all powers of the City vested in City Council pursuant to the Charter shall be vacated other than to cause the establishment of a Charter Review Commission, at which time vacated powers shall be restored. Such appointed or elected Commission shall consist of two members from each of the election districts in the City. It shall be the duty of said Commission to review the Charter in light of current needs and trends and make recommendations to the City Council.
