Charter Review Commission to meet Sept. 3

Posted On: August 25, 2015

Volusia County’s Charter Review Commission will hold its organizational meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3, in the second-floor Volusia Room of the Daytona Beach International Airport, 700 Catalina Drive, Daytona Beach.

The 15-member commission was appointed by the Volusia County Council in July to study the county’s Home Rule Charter, which is the equivalent of a local constitution for the operations of Volusia County Government. The charter, passed in June 1970 in a countywide vote, requires a citizen review at least every 10 years.  

Commission members are Dr. T. Wayne Bailey, J. Hyatt Brown, Frank Bruno Jr., Frank Darden, Patricia Drago, Stanley Escudero, Dr. Philip T. Fleuchaus, M. David Haas, Peter Heebner, James Stephen Morris, Patricia Northey, Glenn Ritchey Sr., Derek Triplett, Mark Watts and Lisa Ford Williams.
