The City Council has formed a panel to make recommendations for changes to the city’s charter, which was drafted nearly four decades ago.
The Charter Commission will be asked to review such issues as term limits, instant runoff elections, mayor and council salaries, random drug testing, campaign finance reports and residency requirements.
Each council member nominated a member to the commission, as did the municipal judge. Mayor Tony Marquez got to pick two members to the panel. All were approved unanimously by the council.
