You are invited to the next Charter Review Commission meeting

If you would like to make a comment about the Town of Bristol and how it operates or doesn't operate here is your chance to speak up. You are invited to attend the next Charter Review Commission meeting on Tuesday, December 8 at 7 pm at the Bristol Statehouse and express your opinion, comments and suggestions. The newly re-formed group has been meeting since August and has been eliciting insights and opinions from various groups and individuals as to how the charter affects them or their job and their input on how well it is or is not working. e.g. recreation department and harbor management among other things have been brought up. These meetings all follow the open meeting laws and so far, every meeting has also had an open comment item on the agenda. The next meeting is at the Bristol Statehouse (Courthouse) when the general public is specifically invited to weigh in. The current charter is available on the town website and of course at Town Hall. Copies of past minutes are available from the recording secretary Dot Viera at: or the Bristol Town Clerk.
