Multnomah County’s Charter Review Committee is seeking community members to play an important role in local government.
Every six years the Committee is convened to review Multnomah’s County Charter and if needed, propose changes for voter approval.
The charter is the local version of a constitution and addresses issues including the powers of county government, the responsibilities of the County Chair and Commissioners, and the elections of county leaders.
Serving on the Committee is an important responsibility and a unique opportunity for anyone interested in deeper involvement with local government.
Those interested can learn about responsibilities, time commitment and the selection process at multco.us/multnomah-county/apply-charter-review-committee. Applications are due by Monday, March 1 (online or by US mail).
