City Charter

In the most historic election in Alvarado since 1878, voters approved the Home Rule Charter on May 6, 2023.  The proposition passed with 69% of the votes in favor of Home Rule.

The Alvarado City Charter is equivalent to our nation's constitution.  The Charter will guide future decisions and provide elected officials with more self-governance, and it also gives Alvarado citizens more ways to make a difference.
