This volume contains the Charter and Code of the Town of Easton, as revised.1995 PREFACE This volume contains the Charter and Code of the Town of Easton, as revised. The version previously published by the National Institute of Municipal Law Offices (NIMLO) was used as a starting point. Code and Charter changes subsequent to the NIMLO publication have been included. The precedents as practices established with the NIMLO publication have been continued.
This project of the Town, publishing its own Code and Charter arose from repeated discussions between Christopher B. Kehoe, Town Attorney and Robert F. Karge, Town Clerk. The previous publication has numerous supplements issued due to amendments which caused the document to be too large for the covers. The supplements were issued every few years and the result was that the Code and Charter were continually out of date. With the advent of personal computers and word processing capabilities, it was decided that the best course was to publish the Code and Charter by this method. The document is available to be searched electronically, updated immediately and costs have been held to a minimum.
