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 phone 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.
