Charter Review Commission

Daytona Beach's charter (PDF), the governing document that outlines how the city operates, is required to be reviewed every 10 years by a committee made up of residents. City commissioners appointed members and alternates to serve on the Charter Review Commission (CRC).

At the CRC's first meeting on January 15, the volunteer board selected a chair and a vice chair for the process.

CRC's Mission Statement:

The Daytona Beach Charter Review Commission has been convened to determine what changes, if any, can be made to the city charter to make it consistent with current law. The Charter Review Commission may also provide recommendations for amendments to the charter that the commission believes could enhance the integrity and performance of our city government in its pursuit of the quality of life that our citizens desire.

What will the CRC do?

It is the task of the Charter Review Commission to examine the city's existing charter (PDF) and make recommendations for changes, additions or deletions. Any recommended changes will be presented to the City Commission for authorization on June 18, 2014 and two public hearings will be established for public input. Upon approval, a referendum is held where amendments are presented to the electorate for final adoption. The amendments will be placed on the ballot at the next general election on November 4, 2014.
