The Board of Selectmen (so named because members are selected on Town Meeting day) performs the Town’s executive functions for the rest of the year. The three members are elected for staggered three years terms. The Selectmen implement Town Meeting decisions, appoint members of Town boards and commissions to help them in their work, hire Town personnel and serve as administrative head of all Town departments.
All Selectmen meetings are open to the public. Meetings are held regularly on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month beginning at 5:00 PM or as posted and are held in the Meetinghouse. Meeting agendas and minutes are available on the Town website.
The Board of Selectmen encourage participation in your Town government by attending meetings, by contacting you local officials to voice your views and by getting involved in the Town through volunteer work or by running for office.
Anyone wishing to meet with the Board of Selectmen should contact Jan Stout in the Selectmen's Office by calling 783-9955 or by e-mail. Appointments should be made two weeks in advance of the meeting you wish to attend.
