The group will review the city's charter and make proposed changes for voters to consider in the November election

The Estacada City Council approved the formation of a committee to review the city's charter for possible changes.

The group, which was approved during the Council's meeting on Monday, May 24, will consist of five Estacada residents. The charter functions as the city's constitution. The committee will review the entire document for potential changes, which could be voted on by Estacada residents as early as the November 2021 election.

Councilor Joel Litkie has requested the committee consider changing the mayoral term length from two to four years, and Councilor Katy Dunsmuir has requested they review Council attendance rules. More suggestions from the Council may come in the future.

The city charter was last reviewed in 2017, and Estacada voters adopted seven amendments to the document during the May 2018 focused on annexation, urban renewal, and new taxes and fees.

Volunteers are currently being sought for the 2021 committee, and the City Council will make appointments to the group during its June 14 meeting. The committee's work is estimated to finish in August.

Committee members must have lived within Estacada city limits for at least one year. Applications should be submitted by 5 p.m. Tuesday, June 8, and are available at {}.
