In a straw vote, the Charter Commission voted 9-0 to reduce the size of the City Council to 13, with one at-large from each ward and five at-large from anywhere in the city.

This could get very interesting

Update: I just spoke with Josh Krintzman, who said that the Charter Commission has decided that it would fall to the City Council to determine its responsibilities and what it could hand off to the city, with the exception of the Planning Department. His sense is that commissioners want to add term limits to City Council but that decision is intertwined with the length of terms, which has not been discussed yet.
