St. George voters approved revisions to the town charter Nov. 8, completing a process to revise the charter that has been ongoing since 2015.

The revised town charter is intended to reflect changes resulting from the creation of the St. George Municipal School Unit. It will also loosen restrictions on Select Board members, which the Charter Commission said will increase the pool of people from which to draw selectmen. These changes include allowing Select Board members to serve three, rather than only two, terms, and allowing them to simultaneously serve on the Select Board and work for the St. George MSU and/or as a part-time firefighter.

Previous public hearings had approved the revisions, but without the necessary number of votes required to pass.

The revisions passed on election day by a wide margin, with 1,163 votes in favor and 324 votes opposed.
