Town Charter Open Comment Period 0ct. 10 - Dec. 10

public comment

Guiding documents are always a work in progress and the Town Charter is no exception. Residents have commented on the need to update some of the Town Charter’s provisions, but   before launching a full Charter Commission, the Select Board has opted to have a 60-day open comment period starting October 10th to allow all residents time to review the Charter and submit suggested updates.

Submissions can be made onlinedownload a paper form (return to the Town Office) or in-person at the Town Office. Only residents of North Yarmouth can make and submit comments.

Once the comment period ends, the Select Board will review the comments and determine if amendments are necessary (and, if so, whether the Charter can be amended at Town Meeting), or  if a Charter Commission is warranted.
