Bronson cleaning up its charter

-A A +A

Next workshop Jan. 27

The last time the Bronson Town Council updated its charter — the framework of its government — it was 1951. Like most 63-year-olds, it might need to change with the times. 

While the town has been around much longer than the current Charter's adoption, the document itself has not been changed since 1951. For now, the council is relying on the staff to suggest changes in the charter and Monday's workshop offered no changes from the staff on the first six sections. 

Most of the discussion in a Monday Town Council workshop on the charter attended by four of the five members was on difficult and somewhat confusing wording regarding terms of office and pay raises, and the mention of city positions that are not used.  Councilman Aaron Edmondson was absent due to a vehicle breakdown out of town.

It was Section 7 that drew the most scrutiny and discussion. It establishes the council membership and the election of a “mayor-commissioner.”
