The Muskogee City Council, acting as the Charter Review Committee, will be holding their first meeting on the city charter tomorrow evening at 5:30pm.
The meetings for the committee are set for the first and third Tuesdays of every month, after the Public Works and Finance committee meeting in the Council Chambers at City Hall, but no earlier than 5:30pm, in order to encourage as much public participation as possible.
Each meeting is to last for about one hour. The plan is to address one or two articles from the charter per session. The review will start at the very beginning, and include the entire charter, a sticking point from previous attempts.
All City Council meetings (regular meetings and committee meetings) are televised on Suddenlink cable Channel 14. The current City Charter may be viewed here (titled "Part I Charter of the City of Muskogee, Oklahoma).
