SOUTHBRIDGE — The town's charter changes will not be on this June's town ballot, despite months of waiting and stated intentions.

That's because the state Legislature still hasn't finished dealing with it. After breaking it into individual bills, the House approved all but one, but the collection still awaits Senate action.

Just after Memorial Day, Town Clerk Madaline Daoust said she simply couldn't wait any longer, since state law requires her to meet her own deadline for getting the ballot and related materials translated and printed in time to mail out absentee ballots. Those need to go out no less than 21 days before Election Day (June 26), so she was aiming for last weekend as her drop-dead date.
