The City Charter is one of the most important documents that governs how your City government operates. It acts like a constitution for City Hall that sets out the rules for elected leaders and its other top appointed officials.
As part of the Charter, it is the City Council's duty to appoint a special commission to review the Charter every 10 years. In 2016, The Council appointed a nine-person commission composed of Council members and residents to begin the year-long review process.
In July 2017, the Charter Review Commission issued its full report and suggested 16 changes to the Raymore City Charter. Now, it is up to our residents to decide whether to approve those changes at the ballot box on Nov. 7
