Charter form of Government

View City Charter (Second Amended, April 2017) | Charter Review Commission

In 1865, the downtown area of Lee's Summit was platted as "Strother".  The town was  incorporation in 1877 and designated as a 4th Class City.  The City continued as such until 1996 when, at the April election that year, voters adopted a Charter, changing the status to Charter City. 

A review of the Charter was conducted by a citizen committee in 2006 and 2016, and all proposed amendments to the Charter were approved by the voters.  This Second Amended Charter is in place today.
