Monroeville council has approved advertising revisions to its home rule charter, which has not been updated since 1997.
“This does not mean the public still can’t give comment,” said Monroeville manager Tim Little at the April 11 meeting.
The municipality has until August to put a referendum on the ballot for voters to vote on the changes, he said. There are many changes to the charter, so the process could take up to four years, he said.
The public can view the charter and the proposed revisions at the municipal building or online at www.monroeville.pa.us.
