City of Riverside Looking for Charter Review Commission Applicants

Every five years, Riverside City Council looks to appoint a commission of nine electors of the municipality to review the existing charter and make recommendations for revisions to city council. The Charter was last reviewed in 2014. Applications are now being accepted for this special commission.

The Charter Review Commission will work with the City’s Legal Counsel and the Clerk of Council to prepare and present a report to the City Council by the last meeting in May 2019. The Council will review and take action as the members deem warranted to cause amendments to be placed on the ballot in November 2019.

There are typically 6 – 7 meetings that will occur between February and May and will be led by legal counsel . All Riverside residents registered to vote and would like to volunteer to assist with this important process can go online and complete a board and commission application at

Additional information will be posted on the city’s website
