Article 2 - To Establish a Charter Commission

"Shall a charter commission be established for the purpose of revising the municipal charter or establishing a new
municipal charter?"



Layman s Language

If this article passes, a Charter Commission will be established with a special election to be held in May 2009.

Background: At its April 28. 2008 meeting. Salem's Board of Selectmen voted to create a study committee to evaluate
certain changes to the Town Charter. The Selectmen established the committee, known as the Salem Charter Reform
Committee, to study and report on possible Charter revisions including clarifying the budget process with precision,
changing Salem's fiscal year and lowering the threshold for approval of bond articles. The Selectmen asked the
committee also to review whether the Town should consider a vote to establish a Charter Commission to allow for a
revision to the municipal charter or to establish a new municipal charter

The Board of Selectmen voted to put forward the question to the Town as recommended by Charter Study Committee

(see below) in order to allow for a formal review of our charter and determine if revisions are necessary or whether a

new form of government should be established.

RECOMMENDATION: THE COMMITTEE RECOMMENDS THAT THE BOARD OF SELECTMEN EXERCISE ITS

AUTHORITY UNDER RSA 49-B:3.l AND ASK TOWN MEETING IF IT WANTS TO FORM A CHARTER

COMMISSION.
