After seven months of work, the Borough Charter Revision Commission forwarded its final report to the Board of Warden & Burgesses in mid-August. At its regular monthly meeting on August 20th, the Board unanimously approved the report, which is found here. The most significant changes in the revised charter are to reduce the number of burgesses on the Board from six to four; to consolidate commissioner duties among the five members of the Board; to make the position of clerk-treasurer an appointed rather than elected position; and to eliminate the position of tax collector. The revised charter will be on the ballot in the next Borough election in May 2019.
