Home Rule Charter

Rutland is considering adoption of a Home Rule Charter.  Copies of the draft prepared by the Home Rule Charter Committee were delivered to Rutland residents on Monday, April 26.  Committee members Paul Anderson, Gretchen Vann, Larry Christensen, Bertha Siemieniewski and Calvin Jacobson, delivered the documents to every household in town, fulfilling the public notice requirement of North Dakota’s Home Rule statute.  A Public hearing is scheduled for 7:00 on the evening of Tuesday, May 11, at which Rutland citizens will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss the pros and cons of the proposed new Charter for a new century.  The public hearing will be held in the Rutland Town Hall.
