The Brookfield Charter Revision Commission has held a public hearing on their recommended changes. The hearing Wednesday night on the draft document includes clarification of the Ethics section of the Charter, a proposal to allow elected Boards and Commission to fill their own vacancies and creating the elected office of Town Meeting Moderator.
The other proposed changes are that the annual budget referendum be separate votes on town and school budgets with advisory questions on the ballot.
Brookfield residents can send written comments to the Commission through the town's website. The Board of Selectmen will also be holding a hearing on the proposed revisions at a future date.
Any changes approved by the Board will then be put before residents on the November ballot.
