Salinas to host second community meeting on charter update

The city of Salinas is in the process of updating its charter, and a community meeting to discuss proposed changes will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. Feb. 11 in the City Hall Rotunda at 200 Lincoln Ave.

The City Council's Charter Update Subcommittee has recommended that the charter be reorganized to make it easier to read and more user-friendly.

Any proposed amendments to the charter would be presented to voters for approval in the November 2016 general municipal election.

The charter update process began on Sept. 15 last year, with a presentation to the City Council by the City Manager and City Attorney, followed by a community meeting on Oct. 10. The City Council considered a draft charter update on Jan. 26, without taking action.

Questions about the update or the Feb. 11 meeting can be addressed to the City Attorney's Office at (831) 758-7256 or Information is also available on the city website here.
