Two will lead commission

BY AMY CALDER Staff Writer

WATERVILLE -- Peter Lyford and Edward Lachowicz will lead the city's new Charter Commission, which voters established in November.

A charter is like a local constitution that governs the way the city operates. The commission is charged with determining whether any changes should be made to it.

Lyford is a former charter commission member who works as resource development coordinator for United Way of Mid-Maine Inc.

Lachowicz is a student studying social work and is the husband of Sen. Colleen Lachowicz, D-Waterville.

The 10-member commission met for the first time Wednesday. In addition to choosing Lyford and Lachowicz to lead the panel, the commission elected Alicia Barnes secretary, according to City Clerk Patti Dubois, who swore in the members.

The commission also scheduled a public hearing for 6 p.m. Jan. 3 in the council chambers at The Center, according to Dubois. The next regular commission meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Jan. 22 in the chambers, she said.
