Amend the Town's General By-laws to replace references to "inhabitants" and "Citizens"

Petitioner: Neil Gordon, TMM1

Special Town Meeting, November 2019

This Article is brought in an effort to make the Town's General By-laws more inclusive, and also for clarity and consistency.

Currently, the General By-laws include references to "voters," "citizens," "inhabitants," and "residents." Drafted by many hands, and over time, there is a marked lack of consistency, and an unnecessary, and likely unintended, narrowness of application.

The simple changes speak for themselves.
