Weston Town Charter: Public hearing next Thursday

The Weston Board of Selectmen will hold a public hearing on proposed changes to the town charter on Thursday, June 14, at 7:30 p.m. in the town hall Meeting Room.

The selectmen have said they are especially interested in what issues townspeople think should be voted on separately when the changes are brought to a final referendum vote in November.

The board received the Charter Revision Commission’s recommended changes to the town charter on May 14; it has 45 days to hold a hearing.

The Board of Selectmen has 15 days from the public hearing to either accept the Charter Revision Commission’s report or to return it to the commission with comments.

The board is scheduled to meet a week after the public hearing, on June 21. First Selectman Gayle Weinstein said they expect to make a decision on the charter at that meeting.

Selectman Dennis Tracey will not be part of the board’s discussions, as he is a member of the Charter Revision Commission, and therefore must recuse himself.

The Charter Revision Commission’s report to the selectmen and a PDF of the proposed changes are available on the town’s website, westonct.gov.
