Is the Charter for the City of Rhome online? Where can I obtain a copy?
The City of Rhome is General Law City and as such does not have a City Charter. Once a city reaches the population of 5000 the City can become a Home Rule city. Essentially, General Law cities can only do what the Texas Constitution specifically states they can do whereas Home Rule cities can establish a City Charter, and as long as the Texas Constitution doesn't preclude them from the activity are allowed and have a greater level of control via City Charter. The best place to determine the rules that govern the City of Rhome is the Code of Ordinances, located here, and the Texas Local Government Code, located here.
