10-30-19 2020 Charter Review Commission Meeting

Alachua County logoThe Alachua County 2020 Charter Review Commission (CRC) will meet on Wednesday, October 30, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. in the Jack Durrance Auditorium (room 209), located on the second floor of the Alachua County Administration Building (12 S.E. 1st Street, downtown Gainesville). The public is encouraged to attend and submit ideas for Charter Amendments.

In 1986, the electorate established a home rule charter for Alachua County. This gave the County the full local home rule benefits afforded by the Constitution of the State of Florida. Every ten years the CRC reviews the Charter and proposes amendments or revisions for placement on the general election ballot, which in the case of this CRC would be the November 2020 ballot.

The members of the 2020 CRC are Penny Wheat (Chair), Joe Little (Vice-Chair), Douglas Bernal, K. Richard Blount, Scott Camil, Eric Drummond, James Ingle, Pradeep Kumar, Erroll “Stanley” Richardson, Tamara Robbins, James Thompson, and Kristen Young.

The meeting agenda includes: 

  • Update from County Manager regarding staff liaison position
  • Presentations by respondents to Request for Proposals for Legal Counsel
  • Selection of Legal Counsel 
  • Discussion of rules of procedure, work plan, and timeline
  • Information items including Chair Wheat memo to CRC regarding meeting with County Manager, and Chair Wheat memo to CRC regarding meeting with Supervisor of Elections
