Three area towns have charter revision questions on the ballot tomorrow.

 

In Bethel there are six questions being voted on when it comes to proposed changes to the town's Charter.  One question is about increasing the Board of Selectmen membership from three to five and increasing their term of service from two years to four years. 

 

Another question is about increasing the amount of money that requires a bid, transfer between town departments and special appropriations for Town Meetings.  The next question is about changing the Board of Finance's ability to make line item cuts in the Board of Selectmen budget.  Residents are also being asked if they want to move the Annual Town Budget Meeting from May to April.  Another question would increase the threshhold for bonds and other appropriations requiring a town meeting. 

 

The final question is about technical changes to the Charter.
