Johnson County Charter Commission all virtual for Jan. 26 meeting
The Johnson County Charter Commission will hold its 4 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 26 meeting entirely virtually, due to the recent surge in Omicron cases. Previously, charter commission members have had the option of participating either in-person or through Zoom, a virtual meeting platform. The change in meeting format is consistent with a recent Johnson County Board of County Commissioners resolution to make meetings virtual. Charter commission members will participate in the meeting through Zoom. The public will be able to observe the meeting, as always, through Facebook Live.
The Charter Commission is comprised of 25 Johnson County residents who have been appointed by the various authorities as provided by state law. The charter approved by Johnson County voters in 2000 requires a Johnson County Charter Commission be established every 10 years to review Johnson County Government operations and present its findings and recommendations to the Johnson County Board of County Commissioners.
