The 2018-2019 Charter Review Commission has concluded the decennial process of reviewing the King County Charter and making recommendations for amending the Charter to the King County Council. 

The King County Charter provides the basic long-term structure for King County government. The Charter institutionalizes core values of checks and balances, accountability, and merit, and seeks to promote an effective, efficient and responsive government.

The Commission held town halls in the community in February and October of 2019 as well as an online town hall. The Commission appreciates your feedback in assisting in drafting its recommendations to the Council. 

Thank you for your interest in the 2018-2019 Charter review process. View the 2018-2019 Charter Review Commission Final Report here
