TOWN OF EAST WINDSOR
CHARTER REVISION COMMITTEE

REGULAR MEETING MINUTES
January 13, 2004

Meeting was called to order at 6:45 p.m.

Attendance:  Cliff Nelson, Peter Nevers, Ralph Saunders, John Parda, Edward Filipone, Joseph Roberts, Kathy Bilodeau, Richard LeBorious

Also Present:  Linda Roberts, First Selectman

Ms. Roberts provided the Committee with numerous materials about Charter Revision, all of which are listed on Attachment A.

Ms. Roberts also advised them of the charge to the Charter Revision Committee:
To review and amend or revise the current charter for the Town of East Windsor in the manner prescribed by Connecticut General Statutes and to present a final recommendation to the Board of Selectmen no later than February 1, 2006.

An idea of what might come before them this session was discussed.  It will be important to meet with the various agencies and department heads to get ideas of problem areas and what is suggested by way of revision.  The Connecticut General Statute parameters mandate two public hearings, one before any substantive changes are made and one after the Committee has completed a report.  While two are mandated, it is not limited to holding only two, they can have additional public hearings if they feel it is necessary.

MOTION: To nominate Richard LeBorious as  Chairman of the Charter Revision Committee.
                Made by Mr. Nelson, seconded by Mr. Parda
ALL MEMBERS IN FAVOR.   MOTION CARRIED

The accomplishments of the last Charter Revision Committee were discussed.

By consensus the Committee agreed to meet the second Monday and fourth Thursday of every month at 7:30 at the East Windsor Town Hall.   The January 27 meeting will be at 6:30 and the committee members are asked to attend the general meeting immediately after at 7:30.  The February 14 meeting,  will be held immediately following the public hearing.

MOTION: To hold the initial public hearing as set forth by Connecticut General Statutes for Monday, February 14, 2005 at 7:30 p.m., location to be determined, where the Committee is desirous of receiving input from the citizens of East Windsor.
Made by Ms. Bilodeau, seconded by Mr Nelson
ALL MEMBERS IN FAVOR.  MOTION CARRIED.

MOTION: To request $1500 be allocated to a fund for Charter Revision Committee Expenses.
