Hallowell’s first Charter Commission to consider changes to hiring practices

Kennebec Journal

The Hallowell Charter Commission, created in February 2015 to review and make recommendations for possible revisions, will consider a host of changes to the way the city conducts business, including a review of the way the police chief is appointed each year.

An Excerpt:

The city’s charter was created more than 60 years ago and last amended in 2006. Charter Commission Chairman Stephen Langsdorf said the group already has set forth a list of subjects to discuss with Mayor Mark Walker and the City Council at a workshop before the public hearing.

'The mayor and councilors are very happy with what we’ve done,' Langsdorf said in the conference room at his law firm, Preti, Flaherty, Beliveau & Pachios LLP.
