Editor's note: 
   The town charter, being section 1 of Acts 1973, chapter 288 is printed herein as enacted.
   The printing style, however, has been made consistent with that of the Fairmont Municipal Code. Other changes are encased in brackets [ ]. Immediately following the last section of the charter is an editor's note in which is printed to [sic, the] title, etc., of chapter 288, the "introductory language" in section 1 of chapter 288 and the "remainder" (being "legal status" sections) of chapter 288.
