TOWN GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE WELCOMES PUBLIC INPUT
Concord’s Town Governance Study Committee, appointed by the Board of Selectmen following the 2013 Annual Town Meeting, continues to meet regularly and welcomes public participation and input. The Committee’s mission is to review the Town’s charter and its form of government, evaluating whether any changes would be beneficial to the Town.
Among the many topics under consideration by the Committee, is whether the Town should add a Recall Provision to its charter. A discussion of Recall of Elected Officials is scheduled for the Committee’s meeting on Tuesday, September 17 beginning at 8:15 am. The meeting will take place at 141 Keyes Road, 1st Floor Conference Room (Planning & Land Management Building).
Public input to the Committee is welcomed on the issue of Recall or any other charter/governance related topic.
