Amendment 10 Workgroup

Amendment 10 changed the ability of county charters to govern the duties of sheriffs, clerks, and other county officers will require impacted counties to revise some parts of their county government structure.  These counties will have to unravel decades of ordinances, policies and contracts and take into consideration laws and cases developed in recent years.  To assist the eight possibly affected counties, FACA has created a workgroup made up of those county attorneys (or their designees) as well as one small county and two medium non-charter counties.
