FERRISBURGH — The Ferrisburgh selectboard plans to review its proposed town charter with voters at Ferrisburgh’s annual town meeting, and the board will also recommend to residents that hearing and vote dates on the charter be set for as soon in the spring as possible, according to Selectboard Chairwoman Loretta Lawrence.

If residents agree, that could mean a charter adoption vote in early May, and the two town public hearings required by state law before the vote could be held in early and late April, with town-wide balloting to follow in early May.

By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — Ferrisburgh residents will probably vote as soon as this spring whether to approve the town’s first charter, one that would give the Ferrisburgh selectboard the power to appoint the town’s clerk and treasurer.
