About City Government

The Cedar Rapids City Charter is an ordinance that sets forth the structure of Cedar Rapids' government. Iowa law provides cities may choose from eight forms of municipal government. Cedar Rapids voters chose to be governed under a Home Rule Charter in June 2005.

The City Charter requires the City Council appoint a Charter Review Commission every 10 years to review the existing charter and may recommend any charter amendments that it deems appropriate to the Council.
