San Juan County Charter Amendment Discussion

Posted August 23, 2021 at 5:36 am by

Did you know that out of 39 coun­ties in the state of Wash­ing­ton, only 7 have a Home Rule Char­ter includ­ing San Juan Coun­ty? The Coun­ty Char­ter is like our con­sti­tu­tion and spec­i­fies how our coun­ty con­ducts its business.

Every 10 years our coun­ty reviews our char­ter and sug­gests amend­ments. These amend­ments are put to a pub­lic vote. San Juan Coun­ty will vote on these amend­ments at the elec­tion in November.

San Juan Island Grange #966 is spon­sor­ing a pub­lic con­ver­sa­tion for cit­i­zens to learn about the amend­ments pro­posed. It will be a pan­el dis­cus­sion with time for Q&A after each amend­ment dis­cus­sion. Grange mem­bers are asked to stay at the end to dis­cuss which amend­ments the Grange should endorse.

Online Zoom — Mon­day, August 30th

  • 6:30–7:45pm: Pub­lic Event
  • 7:45–8:30: Grange Mem­ber Discussion:
    Should any of the amend­ments be brought before a meet­ing of SJI Grange for for­mal endorsement?
