This Act amends the Milford City Charter. The changes are comprehensive in nature and designed to amend and revise many of the outdated provisions dating back to the Act reincorporating the City of Milford in 1970. Many of the changes are technical in nature, including updated terminology and re-organization. There are substantive changes to certain procedures including annexation, tax collection, voting, and vacancies. Some provisions are being removed due to their current inapplicability, such as those relating to the City Alderman. There are also changes updating the powers and authority of city officials along with new provisions relating to ethics and the code of conduct.
