Voting about not voting in Norfolk

Posted by Ralph Ranalli October 17, 2007 09:29 AM


Town Meeting voters will decide Tuesday whether the position of Norfolk's town clerk should be appointed by the Board of Selectmen, rather than elected.

If passed, the move would then have to be approved by voters at the ballot box. Town Meeting voters will also decide whether to change the town's bylaws to no longer require a town meeting in the fall. Selectman Jim Lehan said a fall town meeting would still be held in years when one was needed, but the change would give the town more flexibility in scheduling the meetings.
