MEETINGS ON CHARTER PLAN SET IN NORTH TONAWANDA

Members of the Charter Revision Committee will be on hand to answer questions about North Tonawanda's proposed new city charter at public information meetings later this month and in October.

The new charter was unanimously approved by the Charter Revision Committee and is endorsed by the Common Council.

Residents will vote on the charter in the general election Nov. 2.

The Charter Committee decided Thursday to hold the first information meeting on the final version of the document at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 22 at the Carousel Park Apartments, 100 Oliver St.

Another question-and-answer meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 5 at the Knights of Columbus, 755 Erie Ave. A third meeting will be held at 7:30 p.m. either Oct. 18 or Oct. 19 at the Sweeney Hose Company Fire Hall, 495 Zimmerman St., depending on availability of the hall.

The committee also has decided to send out a general mailing to registered voters, explaining the need for a new city charter and spelling out its provisions.

Individual committee members also decided to send personal letters to community leaders, asking their support for the new charter.

Copies of the charter will be posted at City Hall, 216 Payne Ave., and at the Public Library, 505 Meadow Drive.
