Rockville Charter Review Commission to Hold Town Hall Meetings

Five meetings will solicit public input on city elections issues.

 

Rockville's Charter Review Commission wants to hear from residents.

The 12-member commission will hold five town hall meetings around the city throughout October. The meetings are:

  • Oct. 2 at the Rockville Senior Center, 1150 Carnation Drive.
  • Oct. 9 at the Rockshire Community Center, 2351 Wootton Parkway.
  • Oct. 17 at the Lincoln Park Community Center, 357 Frederick Ave.
  • Oct. 24 at the Rockville Memorial Library, 21 Maryland Ave.
  • Oct. 30 at the Twinbrook Community Center, 12920 Twinbrook Parkway.

The commission will hold a brief business meeting at 6:30 p.m. followed by a town hall at 7 p.m.

The charter establishes the rules for Rockville’s governance. The commission is charged with considering:

  • The length of the elected terms of the mayor and City Council.
  • The number of members on the Council.
  • The schedule by which elections for mayor and the Council are held.
  •  Additional related topics that the commission believes are appropriate.

The Council, which appointed the commission, will review the panel’s recommendations and decide which questions to put to voters on the November 2013 ballot. The referenda will be nonbinding, and it will be up to the Council to decide which changes to make to the charter.
