Charter study commission
Established in 1685, Plymouth County is one of few county governments left in Massachusetts. (Originally the Bay State was home to 14 county governments; that changed in the 1990s, when several of them - including Middlesex and Suffolk - were abolished.) Over the past year, the Plymouth County Charter Study Commission has been looking at options to create a charter or restructure the existing county government. Its next meeting is Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Hanover Town Hall. For the latest news from the commission, and other county government news, visit www.PlymouthCountyMass.US.
