Charter Commission

Charter Commission For Web 01

The Charter Commission was elected by the voters of Framingham and charged by law with preparing a written instrument pursuant to the provisions of chapter forty-three B which establishes and defines the structure of city and town government for a particular community and which may create local offices, and distribute powers, duties and responsibilities among local offices and which may establish and define certain procedures to be followed by the city or town government. This document, called a Charter, was then submitted to the voters and now serves like Framingham's constitution.
