Charter Review Committee to field public input

March 27, 2011
STURBRIDGE — The Charter Review Committee has worked assiduously over the last five months to inspect the town charter and make recommendations for revisions.

The committee will host a public hearing tonight, Monday, March 28, at 7 p.m. at the Center Office Building, and residents are invited to comment on its recommendations.

"If there aren't any significant requests for changes by residents at this public hearing, then we hope to forward our recommendations to the Board of Selectmen on April 4," said Charter Review Committee Chair William Haggerty.

The six-person committee, which includes Haggerty, Heather Hart, Kirstie Pecci, John Kittel, Peter Levine, and Town Administrator Shaun Suhoski, has met weekly since November to discuss potential improvements to the charter.

"We had several goals, two of which were to work in a transparent process and also to complete our work by early April and make recommendations to the Board," Haggerty said.
