Charter Review Commission:

The City Charter is the constitution of the City of Huber Heights. In 1983, the City of Huber Heights adopted its current City Charter and became a Council-Manager form of government. The current City Charter was written by an elected Charter Commission chaired by Ints Kaleps. The Huber Heights City Charter has not been amended since its adoption.

The Charter Review Commission was established by a motion of the Huber Heights City Council on February 22, 2016 to study and review the City Charter and to make recommendations regarding provisions that are in conflict with current state law, do not reflect current practices or realities, or are outdated and obsolete. The recommendations of the Charter Review Commission, as well as input from the public, will be presented to the City Council in June, 2016 for action by the City Council to initiate the process for any amendments to the City Charter. Any amendments to the City Charter would have to be voted on and approved by the electorate at an election prior to the adoption and implementation of the amendments.

The Charter Review Commission plans to meet once a week at a day and time to be determined from April, 2016 to June, 2016 or as needed in the Council Chambers at the Huber Heights City Hall at 6131 Taylorsville Road, Huber Heights, Ohio. Due to the extensive time commitment and compressed meeting schedule for the Charter Review Commission, the City is requesting that applicants demonstrate flexibility and dependability in attending all meetings of the Charter Review Commission.

Applications should be sent to the Huber Heights City Council, c/o Anthony Rodgers, Clerk of Council, 6131 Taylorsville Road, Huber Heights, Ohio 45424 or to arodgers@hhoh.org.
