Issue: The nine-member Charter Board is writing a charter for home rule that would serve as a governing document for Washington County. The charter would change the county's form of government from commission to county home rule.

What's new: The Washington County Commissioners approved a budget up to $12,000 for the Charter Board to hire a consultant to assist with writing the charter. The funds would also be applied to other, unspecified expenses.

What's next: The Charter Board will start writing the charter, which might appear the November 2008 general election ballot.
