Kenner’s Charter Advisory Committee has scheduled meetings to come up with recommended changes to the city’s charter.
The group — which is made up of representatives appointed by the mayor, City Council members and the chief of police — will meet in the council chambers at 7 p.m. on the second Thursday of every month, although this month’s meeting will be on Oct. 8, a Wednesday, because of a scheduling conflict.
The first meeting will deal only with sections of the charter that govern the council, general provisions, amendments and the schedule (Sections 2, 9, 10 and 11, respectively).
The committee is expected to consider pegging the salaries of council members and the mayor to those of state judges, a move that could increase the salaries between 44 percent and 54 percent.
The meetings are open to the public and are not supposed to go beyond 9:30 p.m.
