A dozen people have been appointed to look into whether Watertown should adopt a strong mayor form of government.

7 News reports that Mayor Joe Butler certified the charter commission to review the entire city charter and present any new proposals or revisions to the city. Some candidates proposed doing away with the city manager position and adopting a full-time mayor position who would perform the city manager's duties. If a change is made to the charter, it would have to be voted on by city residents.
