NEW YORK — New York City voters could have the chance this fall to change the balance of powers in city government, overhaul development procedures and maybe make city elections nonpartisan.
A panel examining an update to the city constitution on Monday announced areas it is planning to study. The charter review commission will be holding forums on five issues over the next two months.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg appointed the panel earlier this year, following up on a campaign promise.
When he had the term-limits law changed so that he could run again, he promised a charter group would look at the issue again.
That’s one of the possible changes the group says it will look at.
The panel has an eye on putting potential changes to the voters by referendum this fall.
