The clockworks of Ridgefield’s local democracy — town meetings and public hearings, boards and commissions, elected and appointed officials — is time-tested. It’s functional. Could it work better? Looking into ways Ridgefield’s town government might be improved is the Charter Revision Commission’s task. It starts taking suggestions next week.
The 2017-18 Charter Revision Commission’s first public hearing will be Monday, Jan. 8, at 7 p.m. in Town Hall’s downstairs conference room, off Bailey Avenue.
