Charter Revision Committee makes good stride from Tuesday’s meeting

Charter Revision Committe member John Bickerstaff said the committee is making good strides toward cleaning up the charter.

Bickerstaff said Tuesday night, the charter discussed article two, which deals primarily with the council, the mayor and the responsibilities of both.

Also, they discussed what would be the appropriate number of wards for Piedmont and they decided that whoever is running for a particular ward must live in that ward for a certain number of days.

He said that it was agreed that the term limit should remain three years.

He added that the committee will discuss quorum next week.

“That’s about as far as we got tonight,” Bickerstaff said.
“We are going to talk about in an extraordinary circumstance, if a councilman is to be displaced like what happened in the tornado, but had no intention of moving out of town and giving up his residence. We are going to solidify that at our next meeting, scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Dec. 11 at the Piedmont Civic Center.”
