San Juan County Charter
This is the THIRD version of this article due to inaccuracy of the information which was available. The Charter posted on the county's website is missing a section. Prosecutor Randy Gaylord said the section will be added when the Charter is codified.
Tuesday, March 26, 2013 the San Juan County Council discussed council members Rich Peterson's and Marc Forlenza's proposal to amend the county's Charter through the council ordinance/voter approval process. There was talk by other council members that the process should be done through a citizens initiative.
Apparently the council did not realize district boundaries cannot be redrawn through a citizens initiative. Peterson and Forlenza were not aware the Charter doesn't allow the council to redraw the boundaries either.
