The Citizens Charter Review Committee will meet for the first time this week, to begin going over the rules which govern the City of Greenville.

The session is set for 6 p.m. Wednesday in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street in Greenville. David Dreiling is the chairman of the seven-member panel.

During the meeting the committee will discuss its goals, elect a vice chairman and secretary and set times and dates for future meetings. It is an open meeting and there will be time for citizens to be heard.

The City Council voted last week to appoint the committee to review the Charter; the document which contains the rules and regulations governing how the Council, the city administration and related agencies do business.

Mayor Steve Reid said he had been approached about establishing a committee, but believed it was unlikely the panel would have its work completed in time for any proposed Charter amendments to be placed the May election ballot.
