2 The Florida Constitution In 1821 Andrew Jackson issues first ordinance, dividing state into two counties. In 1868, Governor appoints all county officers, including treasurer. In 1885, counties are formed, amended or abolished by legislature as subdivisions of the State. In 1968, the electors of Florida granted local voters the power to adopt charters to govern their counties. Dillon s Rule is replaced by Home Rule. Dillon s Rule all local government has only those powers which are specifically granted by the State. Home Rule is currently found in Art. VIII, section 1(g).
3 The Constitution Art. VIII, section 1(g) provides: Counties operating under county charters shall have all powers of local self-government not inconsistent with general law, or with special law approved by vote of the electors. The governing body of a county operating under a charter may enact county ordinances not inconsistent with general law. The charter shall provide which shall prevail in the event of conflict between county and municipal ordinances. (emphasis added)
4 What is Charter Government Article VIII, section (1)(d) provides: (d) COUNTY OFFICERS. There shall be elected by the electors of each county, for terms of four years, a sheriff, a tax collector, a property appraiser, a supervisor of elections, and a clerk of the circuit court; except, when provided by county charter or special law approved by vote of the electors of the county, any county officer may be chosen in another manner therein specified, or any county office may be abolished when all the duties of the office prescribed by general law are transferred to another office. When not otherwise provided by county charter or special law approved by vote of the electors, the clerk of the circuit court shall be ex officio clerk of the board of county commissioners, auditor, recorder and custodian of all county funds. (emphasis added)
5 The Constitution Art. V section 16. Clerks of the Circuit Courts. There shall be in each county a clerk of the circuit court who shall be selected pursuant to the provisions of Article VIII section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of the constitution, the duties of the clerk of the circuit court may be divided by special or general law between two officers, one serving as clerk of court and one serving as ex officio clerk of the board of county commissioners, auditor, recorder, and custodian of all county funds. There may be a clerk of the county court if authorized by general or special law Constitutional convention in 2018.
6 What is Charter Government
7 What is Charter Government Charters are formal written documents that confer powers, duties, or privileges on the county. They resemble state or federal constitutions and they must be approved, along with any amendments, by the voters of a county. Charter government was designed to remove the resolution of local problems from the state legislature's busy agenda and to grant the county electorate greater control over their regional affairs.
8 What Is A Charter Government? Types of Charter Counties a. State Constitutional Charters Counties Duval (1936) Hillsborough (1966) Miami-Dade (1956) Monroe (1936) b. Local Home Rule Charters - 17
9 Alachua Brevard Broward Charlotte Clay Columbia Lee Leon Orange Osceola Palm Beach Pinellas Polk Sarasota Seminole Volusia Wakulla List of Charter Counties
10 Why Would A County Want To Be A Charter Government? Structure of county government can be tailored by local voters to meet the needs of the county. Given all powers of self-government consistent with law May provide for citizen initiative to create ordinances May provide for initiative to amend charter Can require an Administrative Code detailing all regulations, policies and procedures Can provide for a municipal utility tax be levied in the unincorporated area May provide for method of election or appointment, whether elections are non-partisan, recall, length of terms and limitation of terms. Whether salaries can be included is unclear. Special acts have to be voted on by county voters additional protections from hostile local legislative delegations
11 Disadvantages Frequent changes in the charter may cause instability in local government Allows local political groups increased freedom from state supervision Local government could refuse to participate in solutions to area-wide problems Ballots may become excessive in length
