Voters in Charlotte will decide next month whether the town wants to change the way it does business.
At a special town meeting on May 16, Charlotte will vote on whether the town should adopt its budget articles by Australian Ballot. The vote comes after low voter turnout on the floor during this year’s Town Meeting Day.
Some residents claim that financial hardships and their inability to miss work prevent them from attending Town Meeting, which can last hours.
Town officials say the decision is an important one that will fundamentally change how Charlotte conducts its business.
