A municipal charter is the basic document that defines the organization, powers, functions, and essential procedures of the city government. It is comparable to a state’s constitution. Charters are granted either directly by a state legislature by way of local legislation, or indirectly under a general municipal corporation law following a referendum vote of the proposal by the affected population.
