GMA is pleased to provide this revised Georgia Model Municipal Charter as an aid to city officials who wish to modernize their existing city charter. While a complete revision of a city charter requires action by the General Assembly, many amendments can be accomplished by a mayor and council acting pursuant to the Home Rule Act of 1965.
