Charter Review Committee

The City of Bowling Green has formed a Charter Review Committee, chaired by Shannon Orr and Jeff Crawford. The membership of this committee consists of 17 residents of Bowling Green representing each ward.

The Charter Review Committee will be examining the City Charter in its entirety over the first part of 2018. Public forums will be scheduled and posted to this website.  If you should wish to contact the committee with your thoughts on the Charter, please email them at

The City Charter (Articles 1-10 of the Codified Ordinances) is the document that defines the framework of our city government. The Charter has been reviewed two other times previously, 1990 and 2001.
