Board of Selectmen

The executive powers of the town are vested in the Board of Selectmen. The board appoints the Town Manager, who is responsible for the day to day management of the Town, the Police Chief, Town Counsel, the Town Accountant, auditor, Executive Administrator, and most members of boards and committees. The board consists of 3 members, each serving a 3-year term with one member elected each May.

The Selectmen are responsible for the annual budget process, including fiscal guidelines and a timeline. The board reviews the annual proposed budget prepared by the Town Manager and makes changes as they deem advisable. The Town Manager presents this budget which incorporates the board’s changes to the Finance Committee and to Town Meeting.

The Selectmen issue the warrants for Town Meetings. The Selectmen also serve as the licensing board, responsible for issuing and renewing licenses.
