PROPOSED CLAY COUNTY CONSTITUTION

On November 4th, 2019, the Clay County Commissioners came to a consensus agreement that a 12-member Constitution Committee would be considered and appointed at the Clay County Commission's next meeting, on November 18th, 2019. The Constitution Committee, made up of citizens of Clay County, will be tasked with seeking public input and developing recommendations from Clay County residents regarding a proposed constitutional charter form of government, which would require two instances of voter approval to adopt as set forth in greater detail on the "Frequently Asked Questions" page.

A constitutional charter county is one that possesses a unique set of laws that forms the legal foundation of its local system of government. If adopted, a Constitution would establish a new government structure and system for Clay County and its citizens, putting the power to solve governmental issues in the hands of the citizens of the County.
