City Charter

The City of Blue Springs’ Home Rule Charter, much like the U.S. Constitution, contains the rules which describe how the city functions, organizes itself, and makes the decisions that affect residents’ daily lives. The charter sets parameters for what laws and rules may be adopted by City Council, what kind of services the public receives, and how tax dollars are collected and spent.

In April of 1993, Blue Springs overwhelmingly voted to create a Charter Review Commission that is mandated to review and recommend changes to the Home Rule City Charter no less than every 5 years.
