Vancouver, WA – The Clark County Board of Freeholders will hold its next two meetings in Battle Ground and Camas, continuing discussions about drafting a home rule charter.

The meetings are open to the public, and will include an extended public comment period.

“We felt it was important to bring the process of drafting a home rule charter to residents in all areas of the county,” said Chair Nan Henriksen. “We are offering a longer public comment period in hopes that people will share their ideas about a charter and our work so far.”

Here are the next meeting times, dates and locations:

• 9 a.m. Saturday, March 22, Battle Ground Fire Station #26, 21609 N.E. 72nd Ave., Battle Ground
• 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 8, Lacamas Lodge Conference Center, 227 N.E. Lake Road, Camas

In discussions since December, freeholders favor a draft charter that proposes three major changes to Clark County government. They are: increasing the Board of County Commissioners to five, part-time councilmembers; limiting the board’s duties to legislative issues while giving administrative duties to an appointed county manager; and, adding initiative and referendum powers.

The Board of Freeholders is scheduled to complete a draft charter in late May, and submit it to the Elections Department for inclusion on the November general election ballot.
