Charter Board Facts
The Charter Board was approved by referendum in the General Election of 2002. City Council approved the Charter Board Ordinance in 2005. The purpose of the Charter Board is to hear and decide all cases alleging violations of the Charter or Administrative Code, except that its jurisdiction shall not extend to any case arising under the Ethics Code or the Personnel Code. Insofar as permitted by state law the Board shall issue advisory opinions, binding opinions, impose penalties and administrative fines, refer cases for prosecution, and conduct investigations on its own initiative and on referral or complaint. City Council shall appropriate sufficient funds to enable the Board to perform the duties assigned to it, including expenses for independent counsel and other necessary staff. The Charter Board must also educate elected and appointed officials, employees and the public about Charter issues.

Animal Control Board Facts
City Council created the Animal Control Board in 1998 to oversee the Animal Control Ordinance and issue permits for anyone to own or harbor any exotic animal, domestic agricultural animal or native wildlife animal within the City. Such permit shall be given only if it is demonstrated to the satisfaction of the Board that the animal will not constitute a threat to public health or safety and that the applicant has the means to properly care for the animal. The Board is composed of five people; two members shall be appointed representatives of animal humane societies and animal shelters and one member shall be appointed as a representative of private veterinarians or veterinary hospitals. The remaining two members shall represent the community at large.
