Brookfield is one of three area towns that will have Charter Revision questions on the ballot tomorrow.

 

The proposed changes in Brookfield are broken into three questions.  One proposed Charter change is to have the budget separated into education and municipal votes along with advisory questions.  Another proposal is that the Town Meeting moderator be an elected position. 

 

The last question would be about whether the remaining charter revisions be approved. 

 

Among those revisions are removing agencies that no longer exist, increasing the membership of the Library Board of Trustees from six to nine, updating special appropriations levels, making the Town Attorney parliamentarian of all Town Meetings and clarifying ethics provisions.  The proposal also allows all Boards and Commissions to fill vacancies as they occur.
