At the direction of the City Commission, the City is seeking applications from residents willing to serve on a committee to advise the commission on revisions to the City’s charter.
A charter for Florida cities is a legal document that serves as the city’s constitution or governing document. It outlines the framework and structure of the municipal government and defines the powers, functions, and responsibilities of the city’s elected officials, administrative officers, and departments.
The City Commission has requested that this committee discuss and give direction on the makeup of the City government, including the roles of the Palatka City Clerk and Attorney. The Committee has also been asked to include the Palatka Municipal Airport in the charter.
Applications can be found on the City’s website, www.palatka-fl.gov/serve, and will be submitted to the commission for selection. Application must be received by Jan. 31.
