Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:


The town of Medway is hereby authorized by vote of the town meeting called for the purpose at least 90 days prior to the annual town meeting to determine whether an elected office, board, committee or commission shall be abolished, divided or appointed by the town administrator or board of selectmen; provided, however, that no such vote shall take effect and no action shall be taken thereunder until such matter is submitted to the voters of said town at the next annual town election in the form of a ballot question and a majority of the votes cast are in the affirmative.

Any incumbent serving in an elected office which becomes appointive under this act, shall serve for the balance of the term for which he was elected. Upon the expiration of said term or a precedent vacancy, the office shall be appointed in accordance with the provisions of this act. If any elected office or board is abolished or divided as provided hereunder, said abolition or division shall take effect 60 days after the vote of the town election.
