Released: July 19, 2019 by the City of Xenia

Members of the City of Xenia's Charter Review Commission have begun the process to revamp the City's Charter. The Charter Review Commission was established with the passage of Section 8.05 of the Xenia City Charter on November 6, 2018. 

Charter Commission members include Jeanne O'Callaghan (Chair), Chelsey Garrett (Vice Chair), Howard Horstman, Xenia Mayor Sarah Mays and Council Member Wes Smith. Former City Manager Jim Percival and former Xenia City Councilman Thomas Scrivens serve as alternates on the Commission.

The Commission is charged with recommending any changes or amendments, revisions, alterations, or additions, if any, to the current Xenia City Charter. Any recommendations for changes are due no later than July 1, 2020. If any amendments are recommended by the Commission and approved by City Council, it is likely that those changes would appear on the ballot in 2020. 

The Xenia City Manager and Finance Director may serve as advisors to the Commission, while the Law Director serves as legal counsel and the City Clerk as Secretary.

At the Commission's first official meeting, it was determined meetings would be held at 12:30 pm on the first and third Tuesday's of each month at the City Administration Building, 107 E.
