Town Manager or Mayor?: Meeting Tuesday Could Change the Direction of Watertown’s Government


A vote that could make a major change in the way that Watertown’s government works will be taken at a meeting on April 6 at 6 pm.

The Charter Review Committee, which is reviewing the document that defines how the Town’s government works, will be taking public input and questions, and likely make a vote on whether Watertown should continue to have an appointed Town Manager with an elected Town Council, or change to having and elected Mayor and elected Council.

People can tune in and participate in the Zoom meeting on computer, cell phone or dial in. See this link for info on how to access the meeting:
