The five elected Select Board members serve as the Town’s chief governing board. The Select Board sets the policies of the Town and ultimately are responsible to the voters for ensuring the proper functioning of municipal operations. The Select Board reviews and approves all contracts and appointments.
Typically meeting twice a month, the Board works closely with the Town Manager as they make decisions that set the course of action for municipal services.
At the Annual Town Meeting in May, voters decide on the Select Board’s recommended budget for the upcoming fiscal year and vote for the new terms of office. Every year at least one Select Board position is on the annual ballot.
