The Charter Review Board is an elected body of 10 members, two members from each of the five county commission districts, who serve staggered terms of four years. The Charter Review Board reviews and proposes changes to the Sarasota County Charter which are submitted to referendum in accordance with the provisions of Article VI of the Charter. An affirmative vote of two-thirds of the Charter Review Board members is required to submit amendments to referendum.
Members are elected countywide by the voters of Sarasota County at the General Election and take office on the second Tuesday following the General Election. They serve without compensation.
Meetings are held to organize, elect officers, and conduct business pursuant to the Charter Review Board bylaws.
