City Charter

The City Auditor is responsible for maintaining the official copy of the Portland City Code and Charter which is kept in the Office of the City Auditor in the Council Clerk/Contracts Division in City Hall Room 130.

The online version is provided for informational purposes only and should not be relied upon as the official Code or Charter. Quarterly City Code updates and City Charter updates are published by the Council Clerk/Contracts staff and are available to download from Efiles.

Every 10 years, the City Council convenes a Charter Commission to review and recommend amendments to the Charter.
