Wayne County Charter Issues … The Legislative Branch
The purpose of this paper is to review concepts related to potential reforms of the legislative branch that could be proposed in a charter county form of government. This paper will examine the lawmaking, legislative oversight, and constituent services functions of a county commission and consider different aspects of organization and power that would empower the commission to carry out those responsibilities in a charter county. The task of the Wayne County Charter Commission is to seek a balance in the charter provisions by creating a board of commissioners that is both politically and administratively efficient.
