Charter Revision Commission - 2021

The East Hartford Town Council, pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes section 7-188, establishes a Charter Revision Commission to review the East Hartford Town Charter and make recommendations for any amendments to such charter; and

The Charter Revision Commission shall consist of nine members; and

The Charter Revision Commission shall review the East Hartford Town Charter and address minor and technical changes along with the three specific issues contained in this resolution, which are (1) whether the Town Charter should continue to list all town departments or provide some flexibility to consolidate or transfer functions of town departments without a charter revision; (2) whether the town directors should serve at the pleasure of the mayor or have some job security protections; and (3) whether the Town should have a professional person in charge of overseeing all town government operations; and hold a public hearing and address such other issues as it deems appropriate.

The Charter Revision Commission shall make its recommendations in accordance with state law to the East Hartford Town Council by January 30, 2022.
