Appointed by the Charter Commission
The Charter Commission was established by secret ballot vote on June 9, 2009.  The Charter Commission was established for the purpose of revising the Municipal Charter or establishing a New Municipal Charter.

Note:  The Board of Selectmen voted to place the question to establish a Charter Commission before the voters in light of the favorable vote on a non-binding advisory question concerning establishing a Town Manager/Selectman form of government and in light of section 8.07 of the Town of Buxton Charter, adopted on November 7, 2000, which calls for a Charter Review Committee to be appointed every seven years.

The Board of Selectmen appointed three members, one of which is a Board of Selectmen member.

The organizational meeting of the Commission was held Tuesday, July 21, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. at the Buxton Town Hall.

The Commission voted to appoint Judy Sjulander to fill a vacancy created by a resignation.

The Commission would appreciate any input from Buxton Residents.¬† Please feel free to email the Charter Commission  at or contact any member. ¬†Meetings are held in the large meeting room at the Buxton Town Hall the second and fourth Thursday of each month.  The Committee has set aside 15 minutes at the beginning of each meeting to hear public comments.
