A public hearing is being held in Newtown tomorrow night about proposed Charter revisions. The Legislative Council was given an overview of the proposed changes earlier this month by the Charter Revision Commission. Overall, the town's governing document was made more readable and user friendly.
According to the presentation, which is available on the Newtown website, several changes are being proposed. Among them is which boards and commissions are detailed in the Charter, how vacancies are filled, and changing the language of the budget advisory questions. Another proposed change would eliminate the town meeting.
Tomorrow night's hearing is at 7pm in Council Chambers at the Newtown Municipal Center.
