New Milford Town Attorney Matt Grimes will host the sessions on October 17th at the John Pettibone cafeteria and 24th at Town Hall, each at 7pm.
There will be time for questions after a presentation. The New Milford charter was last revised in 2006.
Several changes have been proposed this year, including to unify terms for appointed boards and commissions, with members serving four years.
New Milford residents currently vote on school and municipal spending separately, one proposed change is that only the budget that fails would be revised. More budget advisory questions and sending a failed budget to the Board of Finance instead of Town Council are also questions on the ballot. The Board of Finance is also proposed to add members.
