Hearing Set for Tuesday, May 9th
The Board of Commissioners invites citizens to a public hearing at the next regular Board meeting on Tuesday, May 9th, to receive feedback regarding a potential charter amendment. The proposed charter amendment would result in the Town's form of government being changed from a Mayor-Council form to a Council-Manager form of government.
At their April meeting, the Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a resolution of intent to consider an ordinance amending the charter of the Town in order to adopt the council-manager form of government and setting the date of the public hearing.

The ordinance includes enhanced definitions of household pets and an increase in the limit of total household pets on a property from 3 to 6. The revised ordinance does specify that only three dogs may be allowed on a property, and the existing registration requirements for dogs still apply. Additional clarifications were made related to animals commonly referred to as farm animals, and a new section prohibiting the keeping of designated wild animals was added.
