The Charter Commission was established to create a Charter for Plain City, as the Village approaches the transition to a city. A municipal charter is the basic document that defines the organization, powers, functions and essential procedures of city government. The Commission was charged with defining and ultimately creating the Charter for Plain City, to then be put before the citizens and voted on. The vote to adopt the Charter for the Village of Plain City was held in 2021 and resulted in the approval and adoption of the Charter. It is now formally part of the Village of Plain City Codified Ordinances.
