Danbury City Council does not advance Charter Revision process

The Danbury City Council did not have enough votes to form a Charter Revision Commission.  The City's governing document suggests or recommends that it be looked at every 10 years for possible changes, but doesn't mandate that revisions be made.  The City Council needed 14 votes to create the Commission, but the proposal Thursday only received 12 votes in favor.  Typically, changes have been made to streamline the document, update language contained in it, and to remove outdated or defunct ordinances.  The City Council is able to take action in the near future to create a Charter Revision Commission.
