The Carson City Board of Supervisors will hear an update on the work of the Charter Review Committee on Thursday.
Charter Committee Chairman Richard Staub will present recommendations to amend the city’s charter.
Among the amendments recommended:
• to correct a grammatical error;
• to change the timeframe to allow the board greater flexibility in the timing requirements for the board to complete its review and ultimate adoption or rejection of a proposed ordinance;
• to have the Mayor Pro Tempore assume the Office of Mayor and to establish the process of filling the vacancy left by the Mayor Pro Tempore in the event of a vacancy in the Office of Mayor;
• to further define the term of office by including a specific date and time in the subsection for the end of one term and the beginning of the next;
• to remove the deadline from the charter for the realignment of ward boundaries to allow for more flexibility in the ward realignment process.
Among other agenda items supervisors may:
• Appoint two members to the Advisory Board to Manage Wildlife, one to fill a position reserved for a hunter, trapper or angler or a person engaged in ranching or farming in Carson City, for a two-year term that will expire in July 2024, and one to fill an at-large position to represent the general public of the City, for a term that will expire in July 2024.
• Take up nine agenda items about the second readings of zoning changes that were recommended as part of the 2021 Master Plan Annual Report. All were approved on first reading by the board on June 16.
The board will meet at 8:30 a.m. Thursday in the Robert “Bob” Crowell Room of the Carson City Community Center, 851 E. William St.
