Town Charter Review Committee

The committee's work will  determine whether amendments or revisions of specific provisions to the Charter are warranted, based on the LWVA’s “good government” principles. We will also observe the Town’s Charter Review process, and update the Steering Committee as to new developments.  

Committee members: Darcy Dumont, Marla Jamate, Julian Hynes and Janet Potash.
