TUCKER, Ga. (June 20, 2019) – The City of Tucker saw another “first” on Thursday night, as it hosted the first meeting of its legally-mandated Charter Commission. The Commission is an appointed group of nine City residents who will “review City’s experience and recommend to the General Assembly any changes to the Charter.”
“This select group of citizens will have a big responsibility: looking at how our rules of operation – our Charter – are working for us, and what needs to change for our City government to thrive as we move into the future,” said Mayor Frank Auman.
The Charter Commission will meet on July 17 at 7 p.m., then meet periodically over the next several months as they review the document and put together a list of recommendations by an October 1 deadline. The Mayor and City Council, as well as Tucker’s delegation to the General Assembly will then discuss the proposals.
The members of the Charter Commission, as appointed by the Mayor, City Council and local state legislative delegation are:
Derik West (Chair)
Terry Grandison (Vice Chair)
Rebekah Coblentz (Secretary)
