NOTICE OF PUBLIC INPUT SESSION

The New York City Charter Revision Commission (“CRC”) will host a Fiscal Responsibility Forum and Public Input Session in Manhattan to discuss proposed changes to the New York City Charter.

 

What is this Forum & Public Input Session about?

The New York City Charter (“Charter”) provides the structure of City government and key powers of City elected officials and agencies. The CRC is empowered to review the entire Charter. It may recommend changes that would help City government to work more efficiently and better serve all New Yorkers. 

 

The public is invited to testify about any matter of importance to City government and to suggest changes to the Charter, while experts will provide testimony on municipal finance and fiscal responsibility. You can find out more about the New York City Charter Revision by visiting us at our website:  www.nyc.gov/charter.

 

Who can give input?

This meeting is open to the public, and the public will have the opportunity to testify before members of the Commission. Any member of the public may testify about their ideas for improving the City Charter, for up to three (3) minutes. The Commission will hear testimony from people who attend the meeting in person and also from people who attend by Zoom.  A group, organization or institution wishing to testify shall select a single designated representative. New Yorkers from any of the five boroughs may testify. The CRC will attempt to accommodate everyone who signs up to speak at this hearing, but if time does not permit that, the public is encouraged to utilize other opportunities to testify at subsequent public input sessions of the CRC or submit written comments to charterinfo@citycharter.nyc.gov. 

 

Is there a deadline to submit written comments?

The public may submit written comments to charterinfo@citycharter.nyc.gov instead of or in addition to testifying live at a hearing. Written testimony must be received by 5:00 pm on Friday, July 12.

 

When and where is the hearing?

Doors open to the public, and the Input Session may be accessed virtually via the Zoom link posted to www.nyc.gov/charter, at 5:00 pm on Thursday, June 13 at the following location: 

New York Law School

The public may join the meeting at the Zoom link posted to nyc.gov/charter at that same time.

What if I need assistance to observe or testify at the meeting?
