Board of Selectmen

The Board of Selectmen consists of five members - each elected for a three-year term.  They serve without compensation.  The Selectmen act as the primary policy-making body of the Town.  They provide oversight for matters in litigation, act as the licensing authority for a wide variety of licenses, conduct site plan reviews, and enact rules and regulations for such matters as traffic control.  Further, the Board  serves, along with the Town Treasurer, as Trustees of Town Trusts.  Staff in the Selectmen’s Office accept articles for Town Meeting, prepare Town Meeting Warrants and produce the Town’s Annual Report.  Staff also serve as liaison between the public and the Board, handle all telephone calls, visitors and correspondence directed to the Office and maintain all records of Board of Selectmen’s meeting. They also maintain the database of all Boards and Committees appointments and resignations. 


Update on Article 4

Article 4, requesting that the Town’s Board of Selectmen/Town Manager form of Administration be amended to increase the selectmen membership from 3 to 5, was passed by a majority vote at the Special Town Meeting on September 24, 2012. The Special Act containing the wording of the motion passed at the Town Meeting has been forwarded to the State legislature.  

A cover letter, accompanied by the official vote of Town Meeting attested by the Town Clerk, was sent to Representative Thomas P. Conroy with copies to Senator James G. Eldridge and Senator Susan C. Fargo on Wednesday, October 3, the day after it was signed by the Board of Selectmen as its meeting the prior night.
