Home Rule Transition

Home Rule Ordinance
Adopted 12-06-2016


During the General Primary Election on April 26, 2016, Concord Township residents voted to accept the Government Study Commission’s proposed Home Rule Charter.  The adopted Home Rule Charter incorporates the need for a transition committee. The seven-member transition committee will serve without pay and will consist of the township manager, two supervisors, two Government Study Commission members, and two township residents. The Home Rule Transition Committee will review the township’s existing ordinances, rules and regulations in order to align with the new Home Rule Charter.  All changes are to be presented to the Board of Supervisors for approval before January 1, 2017. For more background information on the Government Study Commission or to view the Commission’s Final Report and Home Rule Charter, visit the Government Study Commission webpage.

A Vehicle For Local Government Change

But It Cannot Supersede State and Federal Laws
