At their Nov. 14, 2022 meeting, the City Council appointed a Charter Review Task Force to consider updates to the City Charter.
The City Charter is a legal document that describes the city’s boundaries, form of government and general powers; establishes its administrative structure; establishes the authority for granting of franchises and other functions; and provides for controls such as initiative, referendum, and recall. The North Richland Hills City Charter was originally adopted in 1964 and was last amended in 2001.
Since the last amendments, portions of the Charter are now in conflict with State law and updates should be considered to a few other sections. Following their review, the Charter Review Task Force will make recommendations to the City Council who will consider calling a Charter Amendment Election.
