Item 1 (Mayoral Vote) and Item 5 (Annual report of whistle-blower complaints, alleging fraud, waste, abuse, or criminal conduct.) were moved to the June 2021 election calendar.

The City of Riverside conducts a review of our City Charter every 8 years. This is outlined in the City Charter Sec. 1403. Charter Review Committee.

In February 2019, and in February every eight years thereafter, the City Council shall appoint and appropriate adequate funds for a Charter Review Committee.

The Charter Review Committee shall have the power and duty to:

(a) Recommend to the City Council which, if any, Charter amendments should be placed on the ballot at the next regular municipal election for Mayor.

(b) Hold public meetings to receive input on proposed Charter amendments.

(c) Present a final report with its recommendations to the City Council by the last Tuesday in May preceding the next regular municipal election for Mayor.

It may, in its discretion, make interim reports to the City Council. The City Council shall act upon the recommendations of the Charter Review Committee prior to the last day to place measures on the ballot for the next regular municipal election for Mayor.

The City Council may appoint Charter Review Committees more often if it desires. (Effective 10/23/2012 and 12/27/1995)
