DERRY CHARTER

PURPOSE

The purpose of this Charter is to exercise the home rule power recognized under Part
One, Article 39 of the Constitution of the State of New Hampshire, consistent with the
general laws of the State.

ARTICLE 1
INCORPORATION; TOWN COUNCIL FORM OF GOVERNMENT; POWERS

SECTION 1.1 Incorporation

The inhabitants of the Town of Derry shall continue to be a body politic and corporate
under the name of the "Town of Derry" and as such to enjoy all the rights, immunities,
powers and privileges and be subject to all the duties and liabilities now appertaining to or
incumbent upon them as a municipal corporation. All existing debts and obligations shall
remain obligatory upon the Town under this Charter.

SECTION 1 .2 Town Council Form of Government

Except as otherwise provided in this Charter, all powers of the Town shall be vested in a

Town Council.

SECTION 1.3 Construction

The powers conferred under this Charter are to be construed liberally in favor of the Town,
and the specific mention of particular powers is not intended to limit in any way the
general powers of the Town as stated in Section 1.1.

SECTION 1.4 Intergovernmental Relations

Subject only to express limitations in the provisions of the New Hampshire Statutes, the
Town may exercise any of its powers or perform any of its functions under this Charter
and may participate in the financing thereof, jointly or in cooperation, by contract or
otherwise, with the State of New Hampshire or any political subdivision or agency thereof,
or the United States of America or any agency thereof.

SECTION 1 .5 Districts

The Town shall continue to be divided into 4 Districts for the purpose of electing Town
Councilors from such Districts. The boundaries of the presently established Districts shall
remain as drawn until boundaries are redrawn by the Town Council based on the
decennial Census of the United States. So far as reasonably fair and practicable, all
Districts shall be equal in population. The Town Council shall, if necessary, adjust and
establish new boundaries based on decennial Census data. The Town Council may
establish its own rules and procedures governing the conduct of redistricting. However,
