Charter Amendment Resolutions

A municipal charter determines the basic structure of a municipality. Together with various provision of Maryland State law, a municipal charter also outlines the basic powers that a municipal corporation may exercise.  The needs and desires of municipal officials and the communities they serve change with the passage of time and municipal charters therefore require revisions from time to time.  The Local Government Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland sets forth the manner in which incorporated cities and towns may amend their charters to adapt to these and other changing circumstances.
