The Alachua County Charter Review Commission (CRC) will meet on Tuesday, October 8, 2019, at 5:30 p.m. in the Grace Knight Conference Room, located on the second floor of the Alachua County Administration Building (12 S.E. 1st Street, downtown Gainesville). The public is encouraged to attend.
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:
- Call to Order
- Adoption of the Agenda
- Approval of Minutes, 9-26-2019 Meeting
- Adoption of rules and procedures
- Adoption of regular monthly meeting schedule
- Approval of request of the Alachua County Commission to fund a full time position for the CRC
