Letter: Vote for revised North Yarmouth charter
I encourage the residents of North Yarmouth to support the proposed revised Town Charter when they go to the polls on June 11.
Some of the changes included in the proposed charter are 1) moving Town Meeting from June to April in an attempt to improve attendance; 2) replacing the administrative assistant position with a town manager, in recognition of the increased responsibilities of operating the town, and 3) reorganizing town committees to increase participation and improve focus.
Please read the proposed charter and the final report, which are available at the town office or online at the town website, and will be included in the 2013 Annual Town Report. If you have further questions, please contact any of the commission members: Al Ahlers, Dick Brobst, Nancy French, Audrey Lones, Linc Merrill, Shana Mueller, Ande Smith, John Shumadine, and Clark Whittier.
