Off to a Quick Start
Nine years ago the Raytown Charter Commission began its work with a swearing in ceremony following a regular meeting of the Raytown Board of Aldermen.
The 2014 Charter Commission appears to be more anxious in its quest to write a Charter for the City of Raytown.
Plans are in motion to hold a swearing in ceremony on April 29th at Raytown City Hall. It is important to stress that the date and time are tentative. As soon as a time and place is selected the Raytown Report will publish in the information.
A consensus is building to broadcast meetings of the Charter Commission on the Raytown Government Channel and re-broadcast them along with Raytown Board of Aldermen meetings on a weekly basis. Discussion with city officials has also been held to create a link of re-broadcasts of Charter meetings on You Tube.
Ward 2 Alderman Jason Greene, who was also elected to the Commission on April 8th, has opened discussions with City Hall to tape and re-broadcast Charter Commission meetings on Raytown’s Government Channel 7. A link between the city’s webpage and YouTube rebroadcast is also a possibility.
The Raytown Report has offered to link to all re-broadcasts of the meetings, and, if they are available, publish copies of the official minutes of Charter Commission meetings.
