The public is invited to attend a City Council workshop on the charter on February 8, 6-9pm in the Community Room of JFK Middle School, 100 Bridge Road in Florence. State and local timetables require that the language of the proposed charter be finalized in March so the people can vote on it in November. Now is the time to express your opinions and concerns to your city councilors.
