The group that will be reviewing and likely proposing changes to the Watertown Charter will hold its first meeting on Oct. 6.
The review of the Home Rule Charter, the document that determines how Watertown’s government works and its structure, takes place every 10 years in years ending in 0. The Charter Review Committee is made up of the nine Town Councilors and six residents appointed by the Town Council President.
