The Lake Worth City Council has called for a Special City Charter Amendment Election scheduled for Saturday, May 4, 2019.  The May ballot will include ten (10) amendment proposals. The majority of proposals are language updates. The proposed amendments were recommended by the Charter Review Commission that was appointed by the City Council on March 2018 and convened in May 2018 to review the charter. During its seven month review process the group held regular meetings. The Commission reported its findings and recommendations to the City Council in December 2018.  The City Council reviewed the charter proposals in January 2019. On February 12, 2019, the City Council approved an ordinance calling for a special election for the purpose of submitting ten (10) proposed amendments for adoption or rejection by the voters.
