 Message From The Commissioner

Dear Neighbors,

If you're interested in serving on the Broward County Charter Review Commission, I'd like to hear from you.  In order to do so you must submit an application by May 15, 2015.  Appointments will be confirmed at the County Commission meeting on June 2, 2015.  

The Charter Review Commission is authorized and empowered to conduct a comprehensive study of any or all phases of county government, including significant, regional, long-term and complex issues facing Broward County in the coming decade.

The application form is now available at Broward.org/charter. All applicants will receive a response indicating that their application has been received.   

Recommendations of the Charter Review Commission will help determine the design of Broward County government, and how it should function to best meet the needs of the people. Recommendations must be voted on by the electorate.

The Broward County Charter serves as the Constitution for Broward County Government. It was originally adopted in 1974, and provides for the appointment of a Charter Review Commission every 10 years.

Each of the County's nine Commissioners will nominate two persons who reside within their district. In addition, there will be one at-large appointment; each Commissioner will have the opportunity to nominate two eligible persons to the at-large seat. To apply for a district or at-large appointment, you must be a registered voter in Broward County and not presently serving as an employee of the County or in a disqualifying office. 

The Charter Review Commission members will serve through the day following the 2018 general election.

Sincerely,
Lois Wexler

Speeding up the hiring process in Broward County

As one of the region’s busiest employers, Broward County government is making its process more efficient for people applying for a job and for supervisors screening applicants in the initial stages of recruitment.

Among the features of the computerized Online Recruitment System that opened last month are automated applicant screening capabilities.

Applicants apply online at Broward.org/Careers/ and answer pre-screening and job specific questions. As a result, applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements are excluded and the most qualified applicants are identified quickly, reducing the time it takes to fill vacancies.

Questions can be answered by calling (954) 357-6020.

 


Centennial Citizens 

Broward County is deep into its celebration of our 100th birthday, but we also want to spotlight our citizens who have reached the century mark as well.

If you know of a Broward County resident who is 100 years old or older in 2015, we would like to honor them during our “Broward 100 - Celebrating the Art of Community” project. 

Already photographs of some of them have been posted on Broward.org.

Please contact Cindy Malin at (954) 357-6993, cmalin@broward.org with any questions.
