Description of the Bylaw Committee:


The Bylaw Committee consists of five members, of whom two permanent members are Town Counsel and Town Clerk, and three members are reappointed for three year terms.  At least one appointed member shall be a member of the Massachusetts Bar.  Appointments shall be made by a Committee consisting of the Moderator, the Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, and the Chairman of the Advisory Committee.

The Bylaw Committee reviews any Article proposed in the Warrant for any Annual Town Meeting or Special Town Meeting which involves a change in or an addition to the Bylaws of the Town of Cohasset.  If the wording or indexing of the proposed change addition does not conform to the pattern or style of the present Bylaws, the Committee will so advise the Selectmen.  The Committee also recommends appropriate placement of the change or addition within the Bylaws.  When the Town is in an Annual Town Meeting or Special Town Meeting, and has adopted a change in or addition to the Bylaws, the Bylaw Committee ensures the change or addition be typed and photocopied in sufficient quantity and inserted in its proper place in each copy of the Bylaws located in the Town Hall or any other public office in the Town, and in those copies in the Paul Pratt Memorial Library
