The Frederick County Charter Review Commission has set a deadline of Sunday, December 1, 2019, to receive Frederick County Charter recommendations.
Under Council Resolution 19-09, the Charter Review Commission’s final report with recommendations to the Frederick County Council is due on or before February 28, 2020. In order to be able to fully review, study and workshop items and meet the Commission’s mandated deadline, any recommendations or suggestions made to the Commission after December 1, 2019, will not be considered.
The Charter Review Commission was established by the Frederick County Council to review and make recommendations concerning the Frederick County Charter as required in the County’s governing document. The Commission's purpose is to ensure that the Charter is clear in meaning, addresses the needs of contemporary government, and remains a functional, working document that effectively outlines the framework for the efficient operation of County government.
