Volunteers sought for Ramsey County Charter Commission
Applications are currently open to fill ten vacancies on the Ramsey County Charter Commission. Vacancies exist in all districts.
The Charter Commission is responsible for maintaining Ramsey County's Home Rule Charter. The charter is like the constitution for county government, spelling out its duties and responsibilities. Ramsey County is the only one of Minnesota's 87 counties to be governed by home rule - all others are governed by state laws.
Members of the commission periodically review the charter and propose necessary amendments and reviews and recommends proposals from the public. This unique volunteer opportunity is great for residents with an interest in local government, policy and leadership.
Applications are due Oct. 31, 2018.
Appointments are made by the Ramsey County District Court, not the Ramsey County Board of Commissioners. For more information, please contact 651-266-8252.
