The Charter may be amended in the manner prescribed by the General Statutes.
If any Section or part of any Section shall be held invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, such holding shall not affect the remainder of the Charter or the context in which such Section or part thereof so held invalid may appear, except to the extent that an entire Section or part of a Section may be inseparably connected in meaning and effect with the Section or part of a Section to which such holding shall directly apply.
In general, the Charter shall be subject to the provisions of the General Statutes, and in the event that the Charter and the General Statutes conflict, the General Statutes shall govern. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that it is legally permissible under the terms of the State's Home Rule Act and judicial interpretations thereof for the Charter to contain terms that are inconsistent with other provisions of the General Statutes, such terms of the Charter shall govern.
Use of the term "Selectman" or "Selectmen" is not meant to refer exclusively to the male gender, and all such references shall be construed as inclusive of both genders.
All ordinances of the Town shall continue in full force and effect, except insofar as they are inconsistent with the provisions of the Charter. All special acts or parts of special acts relating to the Town of Weston, except those expressly retained by or in the provisions of the Charter are repealed. The special acts or parts thereof set forth in Appendix B are retained.
This amended and restated Charter shall become effective on the day following its adoption by the Resident Electors.
