Arcadia Seeking Volunteers for Charter Review Committee

The City of Arcadia is seeking volunteers for an ad-hoc Charter Review Committee. At the July 6, 2021, City Council Meeting, the Arcadia City Council empaneled a Charter Review Committee to review and update the City’s Charter. A city’s Charter is a document that defines the organization, its powers, functions, and essential procedures. Arcadia’s Charter was last reviewed and updated in 1998.

The Charter Review Committee will likely meet twice a month for a term of no more than 6 months with the purpose of reviewing and updating the City’s Charter for 21st century governance standards, and will review a wide range of topics including but not limited to: municipal elections, hiring practices, revenue enhancements, design immunity, and other legal protections.

To serve on the Charter Review Committee, applicants must be 18 years or older, a registered voter, and a resident of the City of Arcadia. Anyone with an interest in serving may obtain an application for appointment by visiting the City’s website at ArcadiaCA.gov/service. Applications must be mailed to the City Clerk’s Office on or before the close of business on Thursday, August 26, 2021. Interviews with the City Council are tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, September 7, 2021, with appointments being made on Tuesday, September 21, 2021.

Please contact the City Clerk’s Office at (626) 574-5455 or email Deputy City Clerk Rachelle Arellano at rarellano@ArcadiaCA.gov if you have any questions about the Charter Review Committee or the application process.
