Charter; Town of Kilmarnock. Amends the Town's Charter of 1952, as amended, regarding the Town's boundaries; the service of council members appointed to fill vacant seats; the authorities of the town manager and the director of public utilities; the use of electronic meeting minutes; and other matters. The amendments clarify the duties and terms of service of the town clerk and town treasurer and reduce the proportion of council members who must vote to set the salaries of council members from two-thirds of the full membership to a majority of those in attendance. The bill also strikes antiquated provisions from the charter, such as provisions dealing with the operation of a workhouse, the appointment of special policemen, and the storage of gunpowder, and makes technical amendments.
