The recommendation is not yet final, though. The committee will hold a public meeting on July 9 to review its findings with the public before finalizing the report and submitting it to the council.

“I have asked the committee, and they have agreed to hold a minimum of one community meeting, because at the outset we told the public that we were going to gather information about the benefits of both systems, the differences, and present it to the public and get their input,” said Gilkey, who is the council’s liaison to the committee. “These recommendations as they are set up right now bypass that particular step in the process, and I think the committee has recognized that and decided they’re going to go back and do at least one public meeting where we educate people, talk about the differences, get their input and then go back and revisit [to] make sure this is what the committee wants to do.” 

The issue of re-examining the town’s form of government arose from the issue of districtwide versus townwide voting, which was debated by the council last year. Polston said he is not aware of any effort on the council to revisit the issue.
