Winooski City Council will hold a special remote meeting via Zoom on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at 6 PM. 

This special meeting contains the second of two Charter Change public hearings. The City is considering charter amendments that would: 

  • Allow all legal residents of the City (including those who are not U.S. citizens) to vote in City and school elections and meetings, provide certain protections to the voter checklists maintained by the City Clerk, and to make other conforming amendments
  • Permit voters to adopt Charter amendments that have been approved by the Vermont Legislature for other municipalities
  • Conform the Charter to state law requirements for signing petitions. Remove language referring to volunteer firefighters
  • Permit the City Manager to give to the staff person performing human resource functions the title of “Human Resource Director”
  • Amend the provision relating to the tax assessment of commercial properties to conform to current practice
  • Modify the Oath of Office language to eliminate religious references
