[ARCHIVED] Council’s Ad Hoc Committee to Discuss Charter Commission Appointees During First Meeting


The City Council’s newly created Charter Commission Ad Hoc Committee will hold its first meeting today, Tuesday, July 28 at 4:00 PM via Zoom. Committee members include Mayor Snyder, Councilor Nick Mavodones, Councilor Pious Ali, and Councilor Tae Chong. 

The Ad Hoc Committee’s charge is to advance a slate of names for the Council’s consideration in response to the requirement that the Council appoint three members of the upcoming establishment of a Charter Commission. The City Council must appoint these members by August 13 as it is required to appoint them 30 days from the date of the vote in favor of creating a Charter Commission. The full Council also needs to determine the number of Charter Commission members to be elected by the public, who will serve alongside those who have been appointed by the Council.  

Any members of the public who wish to be considered by the Ad Hoc Committee as one of the Council’s appointees to the Charter Commission should send a cover letter and resume to the City Clerk’s Office no later than 12:00 PM on Monday, August 3, 2020. Cover letters and resumes can be emailed to Carolyn Dorr, Deputy City Clerk, at or mailed to City Clerk’s Office, Room 203, 389 Congress Street, Portland, Maine, 04101. 

The City Council will meet remotely on Monday, August 10, at 5:30 PM in another special meeting for the purpose of taking action and voting on the three Council appointees to the Charter Commission and action to determine how many Charter Commission members to elect.

Information on how to join the meetings via Zoom is included in the agendas. Agendas for all meetings can be found in the City’s Agenda Portal.
