City Charter Review Committee

The Roseburg City Charter Review Committee meets at 4 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of every month to review the current City Charter for sections and/or language that may be outdated and to propose amendments for an updated Charter to the Roseburg City Council. Any amendments to the Charter require a vote of the people. This is a limited-duration committee expected to meet through December 2022 to update a charter established in 1982.

The six-member committee will work with City staff and the City attorney to review and propose amendments to language or sections of the City Charter. The Roseburg City Charter Review Committee will be reviewing the authority and responsibilities of the Mayor, Council, City Manager and Municipal Judge; examining the ordinance-adoption process; evaluating Mayor and Council terms of office and qualifications; and considering municipal court issues.

This committee will not be changing laws or the code. The committee reports to the Roseburg City Council, which must first approve amendments or changes to the charter before Roseburg voters would be asked to weigh in on proposed City Charter amendments in a Special District Election in May 2023.

For more information, contact the City Administration Department at or 541-492-6700.
