3 Workshops Planned On Greeneville Charter

Originally published: 2013-02-01 10:35:53

The Greeneville Board of Mayor and Aldermen will meet in three public workshops to discuss proposed changes to the Town Charter.

The first workshop will be held Tuesday, Feb. 5, following the board's regular meeting.

All three sessions will be held in the G. Thomas Love Boardroom at the Greenville Light & Power System building. The public is invited to all of the workshops.

Discussion will focus on several potential changes to the Town Charter.

Changes to be discussed are:

* removing the Justice of the Peace and Judge responsibilities from the mayor and recorder;

* removing references to Sabbath-breaking and removing restrictions allowing for festivities and pageants; and

* allowing for the publishing of penal ordinances on the Town's website.


Two other public Charter workshops have been scheduled -- one on Tuesday, Feb. 19, and another on Tuesday, March 5.

The Feb. 19 workshop will focus on:

* removing the recorder's office and the chiefs, assistant chiefs and recorder from civil service, and

* removing the reference to Board of Mayor and Alderman salaries from the Charter and instead including the salaries in the regular budgeting process.

To be discussed at the March 5 workshop are:

* removing wards or setting redistricting requirements in the Charter;

* moving election day to coincide with the county general election, and

* lengthening the term of office from two years to four years.
