SCARBOROUGH — The Town Council on Wednesday will hold a public hearing on proposed amendments to Scarborough’s charter, including a new recall provision for councilors and other elected officials.

Under the proposal, at least 25 voters are needed to initiate the recall process. They would have 20 days to collect a number of signatures equal to 25 percent of the voters in the previous gubernatorial election – a figure that now stands at 2,207.  

At least that number of voters would have to participate in the recall election in order for the vote to be valid.

On Wednesday, the Town Council is also to decide which charter changes will go before voters on the November ballot.

The Town Council meeting begins at 7 p.m. in Council Chamber A of the Municipal Building.
