A committee will be formed to look at the Watertown Town Charter and recommend changes to the document that establishes how the town’s government operates.

The Charter Review occurs ever 10 years, and Town Council President Mark Sideris said he will be appointing six members of the public to join the Charter Review Commission.

“They will be sitting with the Town Councilors and going through a very in depth review of the Town Charter and recommending any potential changes to the document,” Sideris said.

The commission will meet regularly to go over the charter. Sideris said every section of the charter will be examined.

“We may be meeting twice a month for up to a year, maybe less if we get items done quicker,” Sideris said.

Sideris said he will interview everyone who applied to serve on the Charter Commission.

Those interested should email either the Town Council Clerk (mpronovost@watertown-ma.gov) or Mark Sideris (msideris@watertown-ma.gov) by Jan. 31, 2020.
