A guide to the proposed City Charter changes

ARTICLE 16. Shall the city amend Section 2, Subchapter 1, subsections 102 and 105; Subchapter 5, subsections 509 and 515; Subchapter 6, subsection 601; Subchapter 9 subsection 909 and 910; and Subchapter 11, subsections 1102, 1103, 1106, 1117 and 1125 of the city charter to reflect the creation of the new Montpelier-Roxbury School district and eliminate provisions for the former Montpelier School Department as filed with the City Clerk on January 10, 2018? (Requested by the City Council)

This change would make updates and omissions of now-irrelevant text to reflect the existence of the new Montpelier-Roxbury School District. Click here for full changes.


ARTICLE 17. Shall the city amend Section 2, Subchapter 5, subsection 510 to allow election filing deadlines coincide with the general State statute as filed with the City Clerk on January 10, 2018? (Requested by the City Council)

This change would bring candidate filing deadlines in line with the state standard, which in turn allows for a greater margin of error and increased early ballot time. Click here for full changes.


ARTICLE 18. Shall the city amend Section 2, Subchapter 8, subsection 805 and 806 of the city charter to allow for two more members of the Development Review Board and to set new terms for the Development Review Board and the Planning Commission as filed with the City Clerk on January 10, 2018? (Requested by the City Council)

This change would update membership numbers and terms of the Planning Commission and Development Review Board to reflect preferred practices. Click here for full changes.


ARTICLE 19. Shall the city amend Section 2, Subchapter 12, subsection 1201 to eliminate collections of personal property taxes for items valued under $10,000 as filed with the City Clerk on January 10, 2018? (Requested by the City Council)

This change would eliminate business property tax from micro-business and small sole proprietorships by allowing businesses that report under $10,000 of property to be exempt from the tax. The change would have a budgetary impact of removing roughly $11,000 from city income, and effect roughly two thirds of current payers. Click here for full changes.
