Charter Review Commission Public Hearing

Wednesday February 12, 2020

•  Charter Review •  Howard County • 

The Howard County Charter Review Commission has spent about a year now reviewing the County Charter. We’ve held a number of public hearings. And we are currently drafting a set of preliminary recommendations. The report is not ready yet, and will probably be available before the end of February.

On March 3, 2020, the Charter Review Commission will be holding a public hearing on the draft recommendations for review before they are presented to the County Council later this spring. The hearing will be at 7:00pm in the Banneker Room at 3430 Court House Drive, Ellicott City.

I will post a copy of the draft report as soon as it is available.
