A charter is the actual legal document that possesses a unique set of laws that forms the legal foundation of a town's local system of government. Charters stand in relationship to a town the same way that a state constitution does to a state, or a federal constitution does to a nation. They define the powers and functions of elected officials as well as the organization and procedures of local government.
