The City of Easton Home Rule Charter Commission held two public meetings solely for the purpose of receiving citizen input on the draft charter proposal. The meetings were sparsely attended, but those who did attend and comment gave productive feedback to the commission.
Councilwoman Vulcano was the only elected official in attendance, and the Gary Bertsch was the only city candidate in attendance that was not on the commission (El Warner, Roger Ruggles, and Sal Panto Jr. are Commissioners). Commission Chair, State Representative Robert (Bob) Freeman was in session in Harrisburg (I watched the Saturday session on PCN-- all talk; no action).
Please, read through the draft Charter(http://eastonundressed.org/hr_charter/HRCdraftcharter.pdf) and send the commission your input before July 23, 2007. The draft will be final on July 26, 2007. Email the commission at email@example.com
