ARTICLE: AMEND CHAPTER 218 – CHANGE SELECTMEN TO SELECT BOARD
To see if the Town will vote to amend the Chapter 218 Zoning, by changing the words “Board of Selectmen,” wherever they appear, to the words “Select Board” and making such other clerical revisions as are required to change all references to the Board of Selectmen and its members to “Select Board” and “Select Board Members,” or to take any other action relative thereto.
