Memo 1110 ( October 2011 ) 18 pages

The Proposed Detroit City Charter

Voters in Detroit will have the opportunity to approve or reject a proposed new city charter on November 8. City charters establish the basic structure of the municipal government and define critical processes of elections, budgeting, accounting, and planning, within constraints established in state law. Charters may also mandate city departments and programs. The challenge inherent in charter development is achieving the proper balance between the relatively permanent charter mandates and the latitude needed by local officials to make government efficient, effective, and responsive under changing conditions.
