    (b) The Town shall have all the powers granted to towns and municipal corporations by the Constitution and laws of the State and this charter, together with all implied powers necessary to carry into execution all the powers granted. The Town may enact ordinances not inconsistent with the Constitution of the State or this charter, and impose penalties for violation thereof.

    (d) Nothing in this charter shall be construed to in any way limit the powers and functions conferred on the Town, the Selectboard, or its elected or appointed officers by general or special enactment of State statutes or rules in force or effect or hereafter enacted, and the powers and functions conferred by this charter shall be cumulative and in addition to the provisions of the general or special enactment unless this charter otherwise provides.
